Assignment: Define some examples of how a job or an action is the economy can’t be understood unless we start from the standpoint of the economy as a whole.

    In referring to Gregory’s question on beauty in an economic cycle and also in the context of this weeks class on infrastructure it might be interesting to look back to Mr and Mrs LaRouche’s writings on a Cusanus City.
