The Industrious Poor

“Men and women, who through almost superhuman hard work and without the slightest help from the legal state (in fact in the face of its declared hostility), have learned how to create more jobs and more wealth in the zones in which they have been able to function than the all-powerful state.  They have often shown more daring, effort, imagination and dedication to the country than their legal competitors.”

 – Hernando De Soto (The Other Path.  NY: Harper and Row, 1989, page xvii.)
