be able to explain why some countries have struggled alot harder than other

and I don't think that libertarians can explain it without the extra pieces
of information that De Soto's book provides. (my opinion based on my
conversation with Mark)
I have been asking myself many of those same questions especially in
connection with the novels I am trying to write.
I have came to some tentative conclusions. First, at the Macro level
of the nation state there is Lexus and the Olive Tree and now The Mystery of
Capital. I have read the one and will seek to read the other. Certainly
LATOT has a lot of good suggestions about the Macro level.
Second, I have come to the conclusion that despite having an MBA from
a leading Business School not a heck of education ever came my way about how
to accumulate wealth on a personal or micro level. After researching the
subject I believe the answer is simple and readily available to those that
dig the answer out for themselves. However I have also noticed that most
folks don't know beans about the subject and really make no effort to learn.
