This research paper examines potential reasons for the variation in the ability of single-party, authoritarian governments to implement major, multi-sector policy initiatives designed to improve the performance of their respective economies. To explain the variation, the study hypothesizes that a strong central leadership, weak recalcitrant elites, and a high mobilization potential of the populace offers the best prospects for successful policy implementation.
