If I Could Paint

“If I possessed even modest talent at painting, I’d paint a picture to convey some sense of the modern economy’s inconceivable complexity, dynamism, and vastness. As I imagine it, my picture would give the viewer the impression of looking at the surface of an ocean at eye-level. That which is above the surface would be visible to anyone, but that which is below the surface would be invisible to all but the privileged viewer of the picture.” (06/07/21)
