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.
Plotting for people: A path for slum free India
Published on : Thursday, June 18, 2009
Hernando de Soto, the distinguished Peruvian economist, asks why capitalism is a success in the West and a failure everywhere else. He concludes because of the almost inadvertent creation of property rights, properly documented and enforceable. The greater the number of people who have marketable, enforceable property rights, the bigger will be the pool of potential business talent and enterprise. Perhaps it is the poor who can make our country rich and help themselves in the process, writes Shirish Patel in the Indian Express.
Buy the land from the owners, not the state
Published on : Thursday, January 1, 2009

He said purchasing land directly from Singur farmers shouldn’t have been a problem for the Tatas at a time they were buying British Steel (Corus). He defended the right to criticism in a democracy but warned it shouldn’t be stretched so far that it harmed industry and Bengal eventually, reports the Telegraph.

Nov 1: Restoring Property Right - Reconciling Agriculture and Industry
Published on : Monday, October 27, 2008
Tata Nano represents the potential to transform the industrialisation process in India. So too has the Singur land protest the potential to transform politics in the country. Therefore, it is a real tragedy that these two perspectives are pitted against each other.
Sept 29, 2008: A Roundtable on "Property Rights - The Sin in Singur"
Published on : Monday, September 22, 2008
Tata Nano represents the potential to transform the industrialisation process in India. So too has the Singur land protest the potential to transform politics in the country. Therefore, it is a real pity that these two perspectives are pitted against each other. This apparent paradox can only be resolved, if we scrutinise conflicts similar to the one in Singur, under the lens of property rights. All are invited to this roundtable on Sept. 29, 2008, to discuss the problems of agriculture and its impact on industrialisation, and explore ways of resolving the land disputes, and facilitating economic growth.
