The Jazz City

Illustrated essay prepared for BURRASCA Journal. The ideal model of a tight partition of world’s economies and politics known as Three-World Model becomes obsolete and ineffective right after the defining of the Fourth World. There will never be a Fifth World. This publication aims to shift the point of view on this issue. Rather than focusing on socio–political aspects and strict categorizations, we sought for speculation on what a Fifth World might be.
