Meadows says that she isn't trying to give us recipes for finding and using leverage points, but to encourage more widespread thinking in systems.
I guess I'm guilty of wanting recipes. this series of posts is supposed to get me thinking in a specific subject -- mass shootings -- in terms of numbers, stocks and flows, negative feedback, etc. Maybe I'll also spread the word about Thinking in Systems a little further. (I think that that would come under the heading, "1. The mindset or paradigm out of which the system arises.")
My next post will be based on "9. Numbers."
