It is difficult for a failed entrepreneur to get a loan of half a million dollars. However, Mr Crag thought he had a chance. He had a contract for supply of barbed wire to fence 1100 kms of border with super-strong fence from a sovereign country. It had not been difficult as there was extreme shortage in international market; 65 countries have erected fences on their borders – four times more than 1989 when the Berlin Wall toppled.
Crag smiled – globalization was supposed to tear down barriers.
