More > a protégé of internationally renowned economics professor Jonah Farley, a leading developer of Reaganomics, the basis of Capitalism-20. Farley died in 2010, having lived to see the Great Recession. His ghost visits Rouge who is the head of the US delegation to the 2012 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Then three Spirits reveal to Rouge his own conflicted family history and the difficult realities of American and world economic development. Woven into the events is a summary of a solutions-based blueprint for Capitalism-21, as provided in the Nehemiah Papers that are discussed at the Earth Summit. Unlike the joyous ending of Dickens’ tale, the conclusion of A Capitalist Carol is perplexing and more thought provoking. [Link to Preview selection is below cover image.]< Less
