ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the explanation of economic historians regarding matters of history on politics in the U.S. Paul Pierson in his book "Politics in Time: History, Institutions, and Social Analysis," provides a better understanding of history leading to the understanding of politics. Pierson argues that economic historians have established a theoretical framework which explains exactly why history matters and calls this framework path dependence. He points out that a body of scholarship is not an obvious place to begin an investigation into political theory. Path dependence is appealing since it provides the possibility of resolving some of the central puzzles of modern economics such as why some poor countries seemed to be stuck in poverty whereas rich countries remain rich.
