Over at Marginal Revolution, Alex Tabarrok notes an upcoming PBS documentary featuring Hernando de Soto, whose ideas are of great interest to many PropertyProfs. Free To Choose Media is sponsoring a contest tied to the documentary for a blog post of under 500 words that best addresses the following question: What institutions can enable the world’s poor to realize their power and achieve prosperity? My guess is that the desired answer is "property". I doubt that I'll write a post for the contest, but if you're a PropertyProf and want to take part, I'd by happy to let you post an entry here.
