At a time when most tribes are struggling with economic development issues, why are some tribes doing better than others? Through a comparison of three Apache tribes, the author argues that any adequate explanation of the differential performances of these tribes and, by implication, other societies, must take into account socio-historical forces and their institutional consequences into account.
