Centro Urban Decay
AOK: Ethics - History - Human Sciences - Religious KS - Art
the Real Life Situation:
Despite the historic riches of the city, all around the Granada, but quite noticeably toward the south-western districts, there are numerous examples of urban decay. Many shops are closed for business, buildings have been left in derelict states and graffiti and rubbish adorn the streets.
The 2007 global economic crisis had a devastating effect on the Spanish economy, incredibly 45% of young Spaniards are still unemployed over 10 years later.
Despite rising levels of poverty and deprivation, priceless jewels, paintings and artifacts are found in abundance in the many churches and government buildings and are generating very little income for those who need it most.
First Order Question:
How much are the riches of Granada estimated to be worth, and who owns them?
What industries currently generate the bulk of Granadian revenue, and how is this different to previous eras?
Second Order Question:
How can the monetary value of historical/religious artifacts be measured?
How can History be worth more than money?
'Everyone has their price'. Discuss in relation to Granadian antiquities.
Who owns the past?
Can anything/everything be considered sacrosanct?
