Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Skyscrapers and shanties, gleaming malls and run-down markets, palatial houses and the piss-poor guys who build them: those are the divides in cities like Mumbai, Nairobi and Manila. Rich and poor do not much mingle.
But a movement’s afoot to change that. It aims to integrate the poor into the urban bloodstream, instead of shunting them from sight. For this “inclusive cities” movement, urban renewal doesn’t require razing slums and markets. Instead, a world-class city embraces its informal workers, those who work for cash and usually lie outside the tax system, uncounted.
