  • How Bitcoin Will End World Poverty- Interview

    SINGER: Okay. The Institute for Liberty and Democracy in Peru, I really think Hernando de Soto should win the Nobel prize for the work he’s done. I hope he does. But he’s going around the world and identified one of the most powerful things to the economy and the creation of wealth. And that is the ownership of property. FORBES: Which you can then use as collateral.  Read More
  • Why Thomas Piketty is wrong about capital in the 21st century

    Thomas Piketty’s book Capital In The Twenty-First Century has attracted worldwide attention, not because he crusades against inequality –many of us do that– but because of its central thesis, based on his reading of the 19th and 20th centuries, that capital “mechanically produces arbitrary, unsustainable inequalities”, inevitably leading the world to misery, violence and wars and will continue to do so in this century.

ILD in the News

In a signing ceremony at the Georgian Ministry of Justice. Bitcoin mining company BitFury, the Republic of Georgia’s National Agency of Public Registry and renowned Peruvian economist Hernando DeSoto announced Friday a partnership to design and pilot a blockchain land titling project.

Bitcoin mining firm BitFury, the Republic of Georgia’s National Agency of Public Registry and prominent economist Hernando de Soto are slated to announce Friday a collaboration to develop and pilot a blockchain land titling project, according to a report by Forbes.

When Hernando de Soto, PhD, reached the podium in the opening lecture of the Building Good Economies conference, he placed an apple and his wallet on the podium.“This is my apple, but there is nothing in the apple that says it’s mine,” he said. “There’s nothing in the apple that says you can lease it or buy it, that you can sell it or mortgage it.


26 March 2016 Este artículo ha sido publicado con la colaboración de Techonomy. Hernando de Soto, el economista peruano y promotor de campañas contra la pobreza, calcula que cinco mil millones de personas viven sin contar con los registros adecuados.

Fue fascinante escuchar sus ideas sobre economía informal y el por qué coloca a los derechos de  negocios y de propiedad como uno de los temas más importantes que necesitan ser mejorados para reducir la pobreza y pelear contra el terrorismo.

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.

 By Richard Branson - One of the things I am most thankful for in life is the chance to meet with and learn from all sorts of people from all walks of life. One of these fortunate opportunities arose recently when Hernando De Soto, the renowned Peruvian economist, spoke on Necker Island.

In an interview to Mint in 2007, de Soto estimated this to be worth about $10 trillion the world over. The trick is, like he pointed out, to incentivize people in the informal economy to accept the new terms of guaranteed titling.

That latter assertion is based on the theories and real-world examples presented by Peruvian economist Hernando De Soto, who is known for his work on the informal economy and the importance of business and property rights.

El economista Hernando de Soto recordó el episodio que vivió durante el autogolpe de Estado anunciado por el entonces presidente Alberto Fujimori, el 5 de abril de 1992. Hoy se cumplen 24 años de este suceso que atentó contra la democracia y él se sumó al recuerdo colectivo en esta fecha.

For historic clarification. Fujimori and Montesinos took a victory that wasn’t theirs. Hernando de Soto, president of the ILD, highlights the leading role of thousands of brave farmers. This ends the myth of the Fujimori victory.

Aclaración histórica. Fujimori y Montesinos tomaron una victoria que no era suya. El presidente del ILD, Hernando de Soto, destaca el protagonismo de miles de valientes campesinos. Esto acaba finalmente con el mito de un fujimorismo vencedor.

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.
