"It’s not easy to hear the truth, that your child is indeed different. Some parents do not even hear the doctor’s words: “Your child has superpowers.” It is natural to feel afraid, and even to seek a second opinion.

Indeed, you will likely come to find your life with a superpowered child an enriching one, in addition to never fearing street toughs again."

That's when we found out what happens when an advanced industrial economy tries to function with no cap at all on interest rates."
