“This is really an old lesson for a new era. At such a momentous time as this, we need to choose the ethos of 1944 over 1914. We need to rekindle the Bretton Woods spirit that has served us so well.”
– Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the I.M.F. Feb 3, 2014.
As young boys my brother and I delivered newspapers in our neighborhood. There was one house in particular that always stood out to us. In this home lived a man with no legs. The house was your standard suburban build of the 1970’s and had a ramp running up the width of the front. The man in his wheelchair would often be parked at the small area at the top of the ramp. It was a short landing from which he could enter the house.
