25 signs that the global economy is broken and obsolete

economy

By Adam Riva: The global economy and any form of government that utilizes it are inherently obsolete and structurally unsound. They cannot be “fixed” because their very underpinning is a mishmash of competition, hierarchy, fractional reserve banking, and fiat currency – all operating under scarcity, coercion, inequality, and varying forms and degrees of economic slavery. We must stop trying to patch the tire and replace it altogether. We are long overdue for a true revolution in the monetary sector of society.

Student watching the clock in class

Does a greater number of years in school mean more learning?

When you compare education systems around the world to see what’s working and what isn’t, one of the metrics we often see is ‘school life expectancy.’  This is known as how many years students go to school.
