<nettime> 20 years of NAFTA [File under Algorithmic Politics]

Hi nettime,

I programmed this algorithm to express my thoughts about 20 years of
NAFTA and the recent 'Energy Reform' policy in Mexico:

'Each time the New York Stock Exchange Composite Index (Symbol: ^NYA)
closes with a positive percent variation, a fragment of the 27th article
of the Mexican Constitution is automatically translated into English.'


[Note: Article 27 of the Mexican Constitution deals with the property of
land, water and natural resources. As you may know, NAFTA-driven
policies are increasingly delivering the ownership of those resources
into the hands of US and Canadian corporations.]

Thanks for taking a look.
