Can Tribes Do? Strategies and Institutions in American
Indian Economic Development
by Stephen Cornell and Joseph P. Kalt, 1992.
In the late 1980s, the Harvard Project on American
Indian Economic Development carried out an extended
study of the conditions under which self-determined
economic development can be successful on Indian
reservations. The core research method was a comparative
analysis of development efforts on several reservations.
The focus of the collection is on the institutional
and developmental strategies most likely to lead
to success on tribal terms.
