Economic Equilibrium

By 2052, an economic process that had been going on for centuries suddenly reversed.

Before, the middle class had been shrinking, mostly increasing the ranks of the poor.  Now, the middle-class is growing.  Very few poor or rich are left.

Charity now has a new meaning:

Four give, and four get.

The Plan

“You were conceived right here, in this house.  All part of the plan.”

This new information puzzled young Charity.

“But why was I born here, instead of the hospital?”

“I had to have you here.  We’d already picked your name.”

“What do you mean?”

“You know: Charity begins at home.”
