A happy place where poeple lived farming, tending to their sheep, growing flowers and fruits..
The kids had ample of space and time to play. The women had enough time to gossip naughty tid bits at the village well and enough sensibility to not be malacious. The men liked to sing and dance.
A happy community.
Then they heard of the nearby village being ravaged by a two faced monster called recession. The happy people got scared. They went to the village elders. Maybe they could help.
The elders listened to their problems. Smiled a little and said - Do not worry children. This monster only attacks the greedy and shortsighted ones.
