Umair Haque sums up the rotten state of our global economy and society. And what better analogy to use than the highway system, which is responsible for creating so much of this urban decay? (via HBR)
"Institutions are a little like highways, whose destination is prosperity: get on the highway, take the right exit, and voila. Or at least they were: today, those highways are crumbling, and more and more of us are slowly beginning to find out — sometimes, the hard way — that too often, they just might be roads to nowhere."
