Summary: "The Fight Against Terrorism is not military. In the long term it is also - perhaps even primarily - economic. How do we create economic and social conditions in third-world countries that will prevent terrorist organizations and ideas from taking root? How do we give ordinary people in these countries better alternatives than supporting drug lords or terrorists? In The Other Path, Hernando de Soto describes how he and his organization, the Institute for Liberty and Democracy, faced this problem in Peru in the 1980s - and how they solved it."--BOOK JACKET.
