To read this comic in Spanish go to Megasueños de Hiper-desarrollo.
This comic was done for the July/August 2001 issue of Dollars & Sense magazine. It was part of a series of 2-page comics about economic globalization and neoliberalism. To see the rest of the series, go to The Comic Strip of Neoliberalism. I have had the indispensable assistance of Dollars & Sense editor Alejandro Reuss in shaping this project. On this particular installment I am also indebted to Wendy Call, a former Dollars and Sense editor, who recently (9-6-02) posted a compreshensive web page on the megaproject. Wendy provided useful information, advice and encouragement, and provided the text for the Spanish language version.
The megaproject is now called PPP (Plan Pueblo Panama) and involves involves several other countries, as well as the Inter-American Development Bank.
My goal is to collect these 2-pagers into a comic book that can be used as a primer for people interested in the emerging anti-globalization movement. Since this is an ongoing project and these pages are likely to be revised before the comic book version comes out, I am very interested in hearing suggestions from people with knowledge of this subject. Drop me a line.
