I don't know. McCloskey writes in "Bourgeois Dignity" that institutions are necessary but not sufficient. What's necessary is adoption of the bourgeois values.

"Culture Matters: How Values Shape Human Progress" by Lawrence E. Harrison and Samuel P. Huntington argues that culture determines institutions and religion determines culture.
