Music: Moonflower by Keiko Matsui from Deep Blue, Stumbling in the Dark by The Jayhawks from Rainy Day Music.
Reads Part Two, X from Ranier Maria Rilke's Sonnets to Orpheus, a poem by Anna Akhmatova, and tells a Native American story. Plays a video by 33rd Degree called The Banker. Engages in visual economics by plotting net assets by population: if one inch = $100,000, it would require paper 11 miles long to plot the Walton's assets. 10% of the world would have assets around an inch, while the other 90% would barely register.
