The Mystery Of Capital Why Capitalism Succeeds In The West And Fails Everywhere Else

The Mystery Of Capital: Why Capitalism Succeeds In The West And Fails Everywhere Else - Hernando de Soto De Soto puts forth a compelling thesis and has a wonderful ability to explain himself to anyone of at least average intelligence. However, as a consequence, the book mainly focuses on the "big picture" and details about policy and implementation are scant. He tends to repeat himself very frequently as well, which leaves one feeling that he could have accomplished his task in half the number of pages.
