The Transcience Of Power Project

This is a self initiated project working with an article that appeared in the Economist, ' The Transcience of Power'. The article discusses the views expressed in the book 'The End of Power' by Moisés Naím, which looks at why the view that power is getting more concentrated may in fact be wrong.

For the crumbling tower I thought it'd be good to reference the Tower Of Babel painting by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. It shares lots in terms of subject matter with the article (see below).
