I’m not smart enough to read The Economist.
Thankfully, I have some friends that are . . . and one of them sent me a great article featured in this month’s issue that talked about The Broadway!

The thesis of the article was something that you and I have known for a loooong time: “Answers to almost all the world’s problems can be found on Broadway.”
It’s a fun article that calls for Kim Jong-un to listen to the lyrics of West Side Story, for Google to listen to Fagin, and more.
