Some Villain Thoughts About a Container Village

Written by Iulia Pascanu

Continued from page 1

A few observations to Mr Doug Casey's reportage about his Romanian adventure (

Givenrepparttar reasons Mr. Casey liked Romania, I quickly made some "counts". The average Romanian needs to work (at a medium economy salary rate of $11 per day) 2272 days to buy an apartment; or, 103 months (I excluded weekend days of course, they don't pay); or 9 years. This without considering any interest. And supposing that this particular individual doesn't eat, dress or pay rent. Just work his butt off. In real terms, he needs more than nine years, probably 25. That's pretty much for an average ephemeride that lives an average 75 years life.

Mr. Casey's mentioning ofrepparttar 132355 brief trial and execution ofrepparttar 132356 Ceausescu couple has suddenly brought to my senses a smell of a Dogville atmosphere that I have never before associated with Romania. Of course, I'm talking aboutrepparttar 132357 movie dog-ville, notrepparttar 132358 real one.

That takes me back torepparttar 132359 initial idea that shipping container housing is a subject that gives you some chalk drawn-squares (or parallelepipeds in our case) that make you want to play like kids do with their Lego pieces.

But here are a few more questions: Where do you find those imaginative grown-ups that are able to play with shipping containers in a coherent / artful manner? What would their work be worth inrepparttar 132360 end? How much do utilities cost (water, energy, gas supply etc.)? Wouldrepparttar 132361 authorities be open to hear this as an alternative solution to traditional housing?
