          The Atlantic is a very valuable publication; it offers cogent analyses on the central issues of our time. Today’s post follows in my series on remaking and transforming the economy so that all benefit, not just a few. This essay cuts to the heart of the problem in the economy we have constructed over the 20th century; it is fundamentally flawed in its conception and implementation. Read this with a mind open to new possibilities.
