Likewise, as innovation takes economic fortitude away from the wealthy, the non-elite use their growing influence and demand more political power. Inclusive economic institutions promote inclusive political institutions and vice versa. This is what Acemoglu and Robinson call the virtuous circle.

The vicious circle is often difficult to escape from.
It is a conspiracy against the public to raise prices. It hates competition because competition lowers prices to a level which is fair, honest and earned under competitive environment. Adam Smith spoke of ‘the wretched spirit of monopoly’, the ‘mean rapacity, the monopolising spirit’ in which ‘the oppression of the poor must establish the monopoly of rich.’ Monopoly is exercised through market shares gained by buying up or bullying the present competitors out of, and the potential from, the market.

When countries are developing its economy, huge investment is needed to start-up the economy and state will cut off the current consumption. The party insist for a “better future” will never win in the election. As a result, the country will never have enough resources accumulate for future economic development (Rao, 1984, p.75 as cited in Prezworski A. and Limongi L., 1993, p.54).
