Cleaned by Capitalism XXXVIII

Antimicrobial Q-Tips are another tiny addition to our Prosperity Pool – a vast, deep, wonderful pool filled mostly by the continual addition of tiny drops of increased prosperity.  This particular droplet into our Prosperity Pool is yet another of the many ways that we are today cleaned by capitalism.


These drops are so tiny that each one is noticed, if noticed at all, only fleetingly and then is forgotten.  Each individual drop effectively is invisible, both to us ordinary people going about our daily lives in an already Greatly Enriched modern economy and to statisticians and econometricians charged with the impossible task of accurately measuring in detail the changes in our standard of living.
