1956 + 56 = 2012

I just posted Kenneth Burke's 1956 Nation essay,"Recipe for Prosperity: 'Borrow. Buy. Waste. Want.'" when I recalled the 1956 Time magazine article, "One Big Greenhouse," which I then duly posted. Burke's essay was a retrospective on an earlier essay he had written just before the stock market crash of 1929, "Waste -- The Future of Prosperity" which was published in The New Republic in 1930. The point being: DO THE MATH, STUPID.
