All of us alive today grew up during the reign of the economic narrative, which tells the stories of our lives as a series of transactions, whose ideal is growth and whose behavior is to maximize profit. Its promise, which is very attractive when you are dirt poor, is ever-growing wealth. Lately, though, that frame is showing signs of wear and tear.
