Many of us—read: anyone paying attention—are worried about problems like climate disruption – biodiversity loss – toxins in our foods – income inequality and the hollowing out of towns.
Such troubles seem impossible to solve – hopeless to untangle.
But maybe our woes are not so complicated.
Perhaps these interrelated challenges stem from a basic design flaw.
And we can fix it.
I contend this messy moment reflects the fact that our ‘operating system’ is outdated and not suited to our current circumstances.
I’m talking about the economy: the system that runs our society’s conceptual software.
