ILD in the News

Confrontacional como siempre, el economista Hernando de Soto afirma que los tiempos de vacas flacas en la economía mundial seguirán hasta que los políticos no sinceren el estado real de las grandes entidades financieras.

El Nacional /  En 1763 los inmigrantes en las colonias norteamericanas tenían derechos de propiedad más seguros que los que tiene un venezolano actualmente en el siglo XXI. Los derechos de propiedad en Estados Unidos fueron "constituidos, asegurados y fuera del alcance de la opresión de los más poderosos" incluso antes de la independencia norteamericana. El concepto de derechos de propiedad corre en la sangre de Estados Unidos, alimentando su sistema de mercado y ayuda al país a prosperar.

Hernando de Soto, ILD’s founder, affirmed that they have received more than 44 requests from reform-minded governments from all over the world seeking to learn from Peru’s positive experience on protecting property rights. Peru’s policy reform, in fact, put Peru ahead of countries like Canada, the UK, and Japan on the Registering Property Indicator of the 2016 Doing Business report.

We will connect aspirant entrepreneurs to microfinance and loans. Home ownership for the poor will be facilitated. As the work of Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto Polar has proven, formalising property rights in informal settlements is pivotal to helping our poor residents become small business owners.

Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto, president of the Institute for Liberty and Democracy (ILD), headquartered in Lima, Peru, will receive the 2016 Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Prize at the 13th annual conference sponsored by the William & Mary Property Rights Project in October in The Hague.

National borders are a contentious topic in electoral politics, with arguments over who should be allowed inside or excluded from a given jurisdiction. An even more pressing problem in most of the world, however, is the widespread lack of clearly defined property rights that allow people to live and work securely, argues Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto, president of Atlas Network partner Instituto Libertad y Democracia (ILD), in a recent commentary for Fortune.

De Soto empieza por plantear que “para mostrar que no tiene un prejuicio anti-americano, el Papa debería asumir la causa de todas las personas que no tienen los documentos necesarios para vivir, trabajar y hacer contratos en un lugar determinado”.

The famous Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto has written an public letter to Pope Francis, suggesting that the pontiff tell Donald Trump that the world needs more walls, not fewer walls, if we are truly going to help the world’s poor.

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, the renowned Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto said that both Pope Francis and Donald Trump suffer from an excessively Eurocentric worldview, leading them to see solutions to social ills in terms of walls and bridges, when what is really needed is a “paradigm change.

Pope Francis’ visit to Mexico last week took an unexpected turn when he singled out Donald Trump, telling reporters that there are people in the U.S. who have no right to be there and anybody who wants to build borders “is not Christian.” The public spat over immigration made news, with Trump saying the U.S. has the right to close its borders and refuse documentation of the 11 million illegal immigrants living in the U.S. To this effect, as Trump said, the Pope just “doesn’t understand” America’s problems.

LIMA – On February 17, Pope Francis is scheduled to celebrate Mass in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, just south of the border with the United States. He will surely take that opportunity to urge support for the poor in Mexico and for those who have migrated north.

El economista peruano, Hernando de Soto, presidente del Instituto Libertad y Democracia, considera que el mayor error cometido en Venezuela es “presumir de vivir en la autarquía”, separado del resto de mundo al adoptar un sistema económico en el que el estado se abastece con sus recursos, evitando las importaciones.

Este lunes se llevó a cabo un foro con el economista peruano, Hernando de Soto, junto a los diputados de la AN de Primero Justicia y concejales de todo el país para tocar un tema de interés nacional como es la Ley de Propiedad a los beneficiarios de la Misión Vivienda, norma que se debate actualmente en el Parlamento.

El economista peruano, Hernando De Soto Polar, advirtió que la propiedad para el ser humano es una fuente de valor que se traduce en prosperidad para quien la posee, es decir, para quien es propietario. De allí se desprende la importancia que el economista adjudique al proyecto de Ley de Propiedad de la Misión Vivienda que promueve la oposición venezolana en el seno de la Asamblea Nacional.
