1. The neoliberal model of development has failed. Big surprise.

Twenty years or so ago, most of us agreed to give a chance to a modified form of free market development. We thought there didn't seem to be any alternative to continued bloodshed and the misery of civil wars that were grinding along without much benefit for those who were paying the costs of conflicts around the world. So, we tried doing something different, their way.

Now, two decades later, the inequality is still there, and in some cases worse than before. Sure, it has a local face, at least in politics. But, the owners aren't local and they still don't look like the people doing the work and shedding the blood.

What are we going to do, now?
