Thankful? Make Lists. Start Here

Thinking is thanking, and for what are we thankful to The One True God Trinity?
We need to make lists. I'd start with the GREAT FACT (that we live 100+x better than our ancestors a couple centuries ago, and that McCloskey in Bourgeois Dignity says that it was because of the rhetorical and financial support given to bourgeois virtues and the merchant/traders in NW Europe @ 1600 and thereafter, Holland and England. A great book, second of 6 projected. When innovation is praised, innovation comes about. 2% improvement per year starting around 1750, a great mystery. But BD is subtitled: Why Economics Can't Expalin The Modern World. Bourgeois virtues--prudence, temperance, justice, courage, faith, hope, charity.
