Description

This book argues that the nations of the Western World are far more productive and wealthy than other nations because of their market-oriented economic institutions. It challenges conventional wisdom by arguing that foreign aid is largely harmful to Third World people and that multinational corporations are largely beneficial. The book concludes with a discussion of the necessary underpinnings of economic development - secure private property rights, purpose-independent law, and free markets.show more
