Juan José Daboub on Economic Freedom and Governance in El Salvador

"El Salvador is a country that went from hardship to investment grade in a relatively short period of time ... I believe that economic freedom had a lot to do with that ... We wanted to change the role of the government from one of an orchestra director to one of a referee that helps resolve the controversy among the different actors in society but that do not have to over-intervene in people's life ... Job creation is the best tool, is the best antidote, is the best weapon to eliminate poverty." - Juan José Daboub
