The financial crisis - when traffic rules fail



This scene does not do the story justice because I missed the main shot.

I was standing there in Shanghai watching the traffic. A number of drivers needed to go in different directions, requiring others to give way.

As I watched, traffic grid-locked because each wanted to do their own thing independent of others. As a consequence, it became a zero sum game in which all lost.
