Aperiomics is a system I thought of in 1989, I’ve been working on it mainly privately since then but am now starting to publish it.

the easiest way to see this, Warner argues, is by comparing unionization
rates in the United States to rates in nearby Canada, “the country that
is probably more like the U.S. than any other – economically, socially,
