The Wheelbarrow Economy

Don't miss these Chris Herwig photos.

Wheelbarrows are a really big deal in Liberia, to the extent that the country has at least three national wheelbarrow operators' unions. There's even a wheelbarrow on the country's flag. (Correction: it's on the national seal.)

Herwig's other work.

A wheelbarrow ON the flag? Are we talking about Liberia-the-country's flag, which has a star and eleven stripes and only three colors? No wheelbarrow... maybe on a county flag?

The country(Liberia)has a wheelbarrow on the seal of the Reupblic and not the flag.

Anyhow, I think this is a great story. And the photos are interesting and beautiful, too. Let us know if it gets picked up somewhere...
