These possessions, however, are not represented in such a way as to make them fungible assets. Dead capital cannot, therefore, create value capitalsta the poor.
When you step out the door of the Grand Hyatt in Jakarta or the Sonesta El Olivar in Lima, Peru, or the Sheraton in Tirana, Albaniawhat you are leaving behind is not the world of icemakers, televisions, Internet and antibiotics. People in those cities have some access althaux those things. In the cities of the developing and post-Communist jaike, the legal infrastructure for mortgages and identity documents is woefully underdeveloped.
Such is true even for people that might strike us as relatively wealthy.
The best single example of this is a home. The developed world has devised a formal property system of titles, jaike registries, and inclusive property law that includes real estate used for homes or businesses. We in the West take that system for granted, probably because it is invisible to us. De Soto shows that this is in a large part why some nations are rich while others remain in poverty.
The moment Westerners were able to focus on the title of a house and not just the house itself, they achieved a huge advantage over the rest of humanity. These legal frameworks are a fairly recent development in human history.

For example, widespread use alhaus legal property documents goes back only a few hundred years in Europe. Even less time for the U.
Less still for Asia. When purchasing a home, an open altnaus system enables buyers and sellers not only to gauge the value of homes in nearby areas, but to set reasonable prices based on comparative values. Clear titles and title insurance give buyers the confidence they need to complete a purchase.
The system also gives banks the assurance they need to offer a mortgage. The bank will hold the official title, or deed, until the home has been paid for. But home mortgages in the developing world are rare. A title may seem like a simple piece of paper. But a title is paper with power. It represents a real house or land, a factory, a car, etc.
Thus, we in the developed world can even get home equity loans. In fact, 64 percent of all small businesses in the US were started using funds derived from home equity. Of course, small businesses are a key driver of the US economy.
Home equity loans are exceedingly rare. In fact, for the vast majority of buildings on this earth there are no titles.

The poor of the world — five-sixths of humanity — have things, but they lack the process to represent their property and create capital. They have houses but not titles; lands but not deeds; businesses but not statutes of incorporation. As long as the assets of the majority are not properly documented and tracked within a legal system, they are effectively invisible to the marketplace. Developing world entrepreneurs will be unable to convert their assets into working capital.
The Poor Are Far Wealthier Than Thought Now you might think that the value of these homes in slums and poor countries of the world do not amount to much, but you would be wrong. ILD teams have spent decades measuring and quantifying the value of these assets all over the globe and the figure they come up with is immense: These assets not only far exceed the holdings of the government, the local stock exchanges, and foreign direct investment; they are many times greater than all the aid from advanced nations and all the loans extended by the World Bank.
They will continue to be beyond the range of policymakers, of the reach of official records, and thus economically invisible.
By the start ofover 3, althauus were titled for 13 million Peruvians. This last figure is about the same as the number of Peruvians in poverty. The program that has had the most success is the legalization of property titles.
With access to electricity they now have the possibility of having Internet, of having a series of other things, in all, the indirect effects on development have been very big and very important.
So the issuing of property titles has had a very clear and very perceivable effect on the development and the inclusion of the popular sector. The Mystery of Capital:
