American excess! Was it this that half the countries of the world envied? Did the blanketed Indian squatting beside his colour TV with the rabbit ears on the edge of a Peruvian jungle lust for pre-moistened two-ply toilet paper available in earth tones? Did the one-legged kid lying in a hole in the ground in bombed-out Beirut dream of stone-washed designer blue jeans?
