Property Rights, Property Rights.

We hear a lot about what we should be doing for the poor of the world. But what is it that the poor themselves seem to be demanding?

Demonstrators will present their demands to parliament today, including a call for a national land commission to grant patta — legal title — to those who have occupied land for generations but have been ousted with little compensation.

Property rights d\’ye say? My, have they all been reading Hernando de Soto or something?
