War and Vegetables by Robert Run – An Economics Satire In A Small Town
Recovering from the low-intensity warfare of corporatism. That’s what three college grads and a small town do, as they rebuild the town and their gas station, after decades of political feuds, finagling, and bail-outs. When no one is really sure who holds things together, who is responsible for training corporatist infiltrators, or what’s going to happen to the old gas station now that the oil subsidies have been cut, the small town looks for joy in the throes, and start again from the ground up. And this begins by enlisting the help of the local farmers, setting up a Farmer’s Market, and eliminating the need for middlemen in the process.
