    What’s “snafu”? The word means “a situation marked by errors or confusion.” It comes from the World War II acronym: “Situation normal: all f--ked-up.” In short perspective sketches of six social systems - politics, money, taxes, work, markets and law - Snafu explores what happened to those systems during the “Accelerated Age” - a period of 200 years that started with the Industrial Revolution and the American Revolution, and ended in the 1970s. Snafu examines how the unintended consequences of rapid growth in the West during the Accelerated Age came to distort our social values.
