Thank goddess someone in geospatial science finally spoke up! It takes a non-economist to see the obvious.
The Fable Of The Marbles And The Teacher
Please send this to every politician in the USA. Heck, to every citizen whatsoever. We have some missing marbles. Can we map the distribution of missing marbles as a negative potential, and find it interleaved among diverse specialists who don't talk to one another, and therefore concentrated in elected politicians ... who talk only to people who don't talk to one another.
Where's that leave politicians? In a race to the least marbles?
