Does "closed to traffic" include pedestrian traffic, or just cars? Anyone know?

Maybe with Friedman and the neo-cons out of power the IMF and World Bank will decide to start actually helping nations, rather than hindering them with policies that have been proven devestating for the last 3 decades.

BurtReynolds, I don't think you know enough about the institutions's policies ...

From Dr. Gridlock for JohnofCharleston: Closed to vehicles.

Why can't they invest in America, instead of
slavery in Latin America. Maybe they want to pick bananas for 3 dollars a day.
What kind of jobs are they creating?
At least here in the United States we have labor
laws.
