One particularly odious ruling revises a Clean Water Act prohibition of mine waste fill within 100 feet of a stream. Not that the prohibition had been enforced.

In this context, if the same is needed by a group of clients, a possible solution could be that of heaving one of the clients retrieving the resource and then sharing it among the group: the way in which the resource is distributed in the group called swarming protocol. The research on new swarming protocols generally shows results obtained through simulations: these results could be far from the real performance of the protocols, but tests in a real environment are usually complex and expensive.
A livello mondiale si propugnerà la creazione di un modello di sviluppo incarnato dal diktat degli aggiustamenti strutturali del Washington consensus, la spada di Damocle che il Fondo Monetario Internazionale e la Banca Mondiale faranno pendere sui paesi in via di sviluppo (a tal proposito è interessante il libro “Confessioni di un sicario dell’economia” di John Perkins). L’esito più eclatante di questa politica sarà l’esplosione della crisi del debito e la plateale bancarotta dell’Argentina nel 2001.
