I wanted to make a new collection exploring the world as it is today-uncut and unedited. Linked is a This American Life segment about how hard it can be to fix things. A government officer in Honduras wanted to make things better, and he had a great idea. What if we just start over? What if we can finally start to get things right-in one part of the country? So the government got together with economist Paul Romer to try and make it happen. Anyone interested in development should give it a listen, a lot of the problems they face in Honduras are mirrored in any developing country trying to improve.
