Lars P. Syll — Esther Duflo vs Elinor Ostrom

Agnès Labrouse quote. 

The most revelant sentence: 
While Duflo and Banerjee are in line with a technocratic democracy, the Ostroms sustain a Tocquevillean democratic self-governance. For the latter, institutions emanating from democratic processes, far from being straitjackets, are the core of economic processes. They simultaneously constraint and enable human action.
Paternalism versus democracy.  That's pretty much the "compassionate conservative," liberal divide.
