Dream Interruptus (2000)

Dream : of upgrading the nation's status to a NIC - Newly Industrialised Country. Not through hard work but stock market and real estate speculation.
Not towards democratic maturity but all for concrete development. Highrises shoot up reaching for the sky. Circa 1985-1997.
Interruptus : The bubble burst in 1997. Money from nothing, goes back to nothing. Not enough left even to finish the skyscrapers.
The city's full of graveyards, half-finished buildings hulking in their own shadow; empty shells and ruins left from a global economic war
