Systems Thinking: The Ben Okri Way

There is a famous story of a chief who ordered all the frogs to be killed because they disturbed his sleep. The frogs were killed and he slept well till the mosquitoes came and destroyed his kingdom. His people fled the realm because of the diseases the mosquito brought and what was once a proud land became an empty waste.

A passage from Infinite Riches authored by Ben Okri

He must have been inspired by Dr. Suess.
