Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Small parts are developed - and some parts are very developed indeed.

But most of it isn't.

The US is a microcosm of the global economy. I have been harping about how global liberalised capital movements dissolve the national economies into one single world economy, and so we're going to see a thirdworldisation of the whole planet. Most countries are going to end up having very developed areas and vast hinterlands of misery.

Bush is a symptom, not the disease.
