Land Bill is placebo; real cure is restoring Right to Property
Published on : Thursday, September 5, 2013
Without iron-clad property rights, the state can simply dispossess you and effectively deny you your other fundamental rights. The Right to Property is the foundation on which all other rights are built. Without wealth, property, income and the means to livelihood (which is the broader definition of the word property), the other freedoms (equality, free speech, and religion) mean little. The Land Acquisition Act of 2013, which does not change the fact that Right to Property has been deleted from the Indian constitution, may only do more harm than good, writes R. Jagannathan, in the First Post.

Knowledge lies at the heart of western capitalism
Published on : Sunday, January 29, 2012
The world economy is made up of many tiny parts that are useful only when we combine them into more complex wholes. The higher the value of these aggregations, the more economic growth. Humanity’s achievements – from the 120 ingredients of my clock to the countless financial deals and developments that produced the internet and flight navigation systems – all result from joining people and things to each other. That’s why western capitalism has triumphed for the past 150 years: it gave us the best knowledge to explore economic combinations. Capitalism does not need to be re-thought or re-invented; it simply has to be re-discovered, writes Hernando de Soto in the Financial Times.
