 'This notion was clear to  De Soto and he considered that this was the basis of success for any country.For him, money and the financial system are not wealth; money is just the consequence of an attitude. One should not want money; one must desire the attitude that gives you everything.'

'De Soto tenía clarísimo eso y lo consideraba la base del éxito de un pais. Para él, el dinero y el sistema financiero no son la riqueza, sino que el dinero es sólo la huella de una actitud. Uno no debe desear dinero, uno debe desear la actitud que te le de todo.'
