John Stossel interviews Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto on the importance of property rights to society. Property rights and rule of law are the  key to turning around persistent poverty in poor nations. Until poor nations have property rights and rule of law, all the economic aid in the world isn't  going to turn them around.

Hernando de Soto is president of the Institute of Liberty and Democracy (ILD), a Lima Peru-based think tank that advocates for property rights in developing nations. Recently he spoke with McKinsey’s Rik Kirkland.

April 24, 2012 -Yesterday I hosted the Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto for a meeting at CFR. De Soto and his Lima-based think tank, the Institute for Liberty and Democracy (ILD), are well-known for their advocacy of secure property rights as an essential gateway to equitable growth and poverty reduction. Yesterday’s conversation focused on the Middle East—specifically what de Soto sees as the economic roots of the uprisings that have swept the Arab world.
