The problem in poor countries is not that there’s a lack of talent or know-how. The problem is a lack of Economic Rights for the Poor. Bad public policies create big obstacles to saving, investment, and entrepreneurship. If you get the obstacles out of the way, you’ll see the poor create “fisheries” – and other commercial enterprises. So they’re not just feeding themselves or their families, but entire communities — communities that will prosper from more productivity, more specialization, and more free exchange.
