The American Economy and Kites

Mega Flag Kite

Mega Flag is one of the world’s largest kites, measuring 138 feet x 83 feet.

Some say the winds of the American economy will never stop blowing, carrying the economy infinitely higher forever. Some of the same people say that if we rely on intelligence, reason, and science, with initiatives such as wind turbines, the lights will all go out when the wind stops blowing.

What if the winds do slow or stop blowing and instead of the lights going out, the Mega Flag economy can’t stay aloft and comes crashing to the ground?
