From David Wessel’s Honduran charter cities piece in the WSJ:

“A good idea from an economic point of view,” says Antonio Tavel Otero,
a Honduran businessman. “But I don’t think you can sell this: Telling
Hondurans our laws are so bad we have to have someone else’s?”

Perhaps Tolstoy’s classic essay “Patriotism or Peace?” needs a companion essay on “Patriotism or Prosperity?”  Sigh.
