Enclaves and Special Zones [245-2]

Special Economic Zones are a type of proto-state. They function as adapters zones to globalism. Ideally they are stripped of cultural, local, national, linguistic, fiduciary, monetary, regulatory, ethnic, and social barriers, idiosyncrasies, identities, and flavors. These Nationettes are run by corporations, governments, authorities, or organizations. At the same time they are incubators for new arrangements, agreements and contracts of social, commercial, and industrial infrastructure in a networked world. A network of SEZs would represent a structurally new, highly fluid state morphology - the antithesis to the nation state concept of the early 19th century.
