Metaphor again

This picture represents our economy. Notice that there are a few bigger rocks, many smaller.  Big rocks are lifted up higher by smaller ones sometimes.  All rocks are bathed indiscriminately by the water; some rocks get more sun than others.   All are shifted by larger forces; some glide with the flow and others resist it, bumping along uncomfortably.  Notice that absolutely every rock has its own unique character.  No two rocks are exactly alike.  They fit together randomly, with each wave challenging their position.  They seem unperturbed by the water or one another:  they seem to be absorbed in worship of the sky.
