Top Honduras court blocks plan to literally privatize some of the country

Last week the Honduras supreme court turned down the plan to cede sovereignty over parts of Honduran territory to private entities (AP).

The plan, which a few sweatshop investor types were big on, had gotten a burst of attention in the United States a few months ago when Planet Money's Adam Davidson touted it as a brilliant idea in the pages of the New York Times Magazine.

A rare victory for the Honduran people and loss for the right wingers.
