Land Distribution Paradoxes and Dilemmas
Published on : Thursday, October 31, 2013
“The land question” is seldom a question. Typically it is a slew of dogmas and myths as tenacious as they are erroneous. Virtually every supposed fact about land in South Africa is not just wrong, but so far off the mark as to make the adoption of sound policies virtually impossible. Few issues are as bedevilled by the hard-wired inclination to see issues of race in black and white, in both senses of the term. A binary imperative seems to drive us into adopting one of two sides when things are seldom that simple. How many well-informed South Africans are even vaguely aware of the tenure under which Coloureds and Asians lived historically or live today, or how much land was “set aside” for their occupation, asks Leon Louw in this paper published by The Helen Suzman Foundation.

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.

The cost of financial ignorance
Published on : Monday, October 24, 2011
In an article- 'The cost of financial ignorance', published in The Washington Post, dated 7 October 2011, Hernando de Soto stresses the importance of documenting assets and transactions for the creation of credit. He explains how the reliability of the records makes credit trustworthy and how it is important to establish the link between who owns what, how much, and who holds the risks. Not having reliable information reduces confidence, leading to credit contractions, fewer or smaller transactions, and declines in demand. And these cause employment and the value of assets to fall.
