All Along The Watchtower

There must be some way out of here,” said the joker to the thief

Not in Namangan Viloyati (Uzbekistan) you’d have thought there wasn’t. But again I am obviously wrong. Man – sorry person – hole covers have been disappearing all over the Namangan region according to this link-up I’ve just discovered with the Argus.

The global watchtower at work again. If you want to know what globalisation 3.0 is all about, then here you have it. But I don’t know which of the two is the more symbolically significant detail: the scrap metal dirty dealings in Chust or the tooing-and-frowing of this little meme.

About Edward Hugh

Edward 'the bonobo is a Catalan economist of British extraction. After being born, brought-up and educated in the United Kingdom, Edward subsequently settled in Barcelona where he has now lived for over 15 years. As a consequence Edward considers himself to be "Catalan by adoption". He has also to some extent been "adopted by Catalonia", since throughout the current economic crisis he has been a constant voice on TV, radio and in the press arguing in favor of the need for some kind of internal devaluation if Spain wants to stay inside the Euro. By inclination he is a macro economist, but his obsession with trying to understand the economic impact of demographic changes has often taken him far from home, off and away from the more tranquil and placid pastures of the dismal science, into the bracken and thicket of demography, anthropology, biology, sociology and systems theory. All of which has lead him to ask himself whether Thomas Wolfe was not in fact right when he asserted that the fact of the matter is "you can never go home again".
