Progress (part two) Complacency (and three) Collapse

Progress (part two) Complacency (and three) Collapse

Thisis the continuation and finale of the progress song from a week or so ago.  This is about fat-cat people with pools and spas and how they go bankrupt after they take progress as though it were static.

The collapsing part sounds pretty darn rusty and clammourish… just like a 1930’s factory.
A startling conclusion I came to while writing this song is that corporate successes during the 19th and 20th centuries were often not backward and forwards compatible…. scalable, I guess, would be the word.  Things like steel mills and heavy industry is a whole lot less scalable than todays economy of abstracted technology.  Hopefully we won’t have any of this collapsation happening as it did back then in the depression.

I used some piano on this… that’s pretty rare for me.
