Classical historian, but not practicing. MPH student. Catholic advocate for contraceptive access and education. Wife. Mother. Birthworker. Lover of science, respect, informed consent, my son, and incomplete sentences—though not in that order. Nerdy about diaphragms and Bangladesh, especially when combined.

I always think of Switzerland as quite small, so I didn’t consider how much variety there was. That was, of course, quite silly.

16 Diabolical Acts of Evil by Famous Corporations

The US economy currently produces roughly $200,000 for every family of four - even with high unemployment, even in stagnation. Viewed differently, this is the equivalent of roughly $100,000 for every family of four - and roughly a twenty hour work week. Technically speaking we have no economic problem; we have a political problem in managing the most powerful economy in the world. A restructured system could move rapidly toward a reduced work week, along with redistributive measures to alter the current radically unequal distributions of income and wealth. Alternatively, individuals might work longer hours, but take the equivalent amount of free time in several-month breaks, during which they could study, learn new skills, take up creative arts, or just vacation. These are not technical problems; they are political problems a serious next system could undertake to resolve if the structures of power that now block solutions were altered.
