about

In the original Grumbling Hive, dishonesty and vice created employment and wealth, inspiring Adam Smith, whose idealization of  markets is a template for today’s unbridled capitalism. In Mandeville Sr.’s  fable, a turn to honesty by his bees ( miniature Europeans) ruins the economy. In Mandeville Jr.’s  fable, bees as they are, a  community based on mutual support and selfless care, are ruined by the adoption of  unbridled capitalism.
