This American Life on the Charter City Episode in Honduras

January 13, 2013


A young idealist named Octavio Sanchez is chief of staff to the president of Honduras. He gets an idea: What if you could cure all your country’s ills by just … starting over? In one little spot, you could create a whole new, perfect city. Do all the reforms you want to do in that one place — and if it works, it could spread to the whole country. But how could he pull off such a radical project?

    The NPR segment was better than I expected. They did not get everything right, for instance, they left it as an open question whether such an idea could work, without bothering to mention the examples of Hong Kong and the stock market in the Middle East.

    Does anyone have the URL for this segment.

      Bobby, the “NPR” text before the pull-quote is a link to the audio.
