Ryan, this is a spectacular piece!
It beautifully represents the compounding of problems in our current world. In 1955 we would have blamed Personal Motivation and the Unions. In 1985 we would have used the Theory of Constraints to tease through the bottlenecks. In 1995 we would have summoned Lean Thinking. In 2010 we would have prattled on about teamwork.
All of these frameworks are helpful tools to understand the problem. We have to use these and more to upgrade capitalism in the current world.
We have to build Capitalism 3.0! Or maybe we should go ahead and upgrade to 4.0...
