(Franciscan nuns in South Bronx)
In the nineties I was part of a wave of Investment Bankers and smart policy wonks that invaded Argentina. We had arrived, many under the auspices of the IMF, to convince Argentina to embrace the economic mantra of unregulated free markets.
Our days were…
We shall not cease from exploration
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time
- T. S. Eliot (The Four Quartets, “Little Gidding”)
I have an idea of home that is at odds with duration.
It causes me to seek (and to toy with) a more permanent sense of safe.
