Global Index of Economic Openness conference


The Legatum Institute was delighted to welcome renowned Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto to discuss the launch of the Institute's Global Index of Economic Openness programme. 

The GIEO, described by de Soto as "a fascinating and very important study", is designed to enable governments to assess the economic impact of their policy choices in areas such as trade and commerce, finance, enterprise and property rights, as well as illustrating the vast potential for wealth creation from their improvement.
