Macroeconomics : solving world hunger and poverty

CULTURE CLASH: A Talk with Hernando De Soto

De Soto is just brilliant. His analysis of the root cause of poverty being lack of predictable legal infrastrucutre is right on. This is a key point that many people miss : it's not so much democracy as a predictable and efficient infrastructure to protect & enforce property rights that is key to wealth creation in a free market system. Case in point : Singapore has done a much better job of creating wealth than Latin American democracies or India or Bangladesh.
