Fascinating essay that addresses scale, efficiency, duration and size of animals, cities and corporations by data-driven scientists joining math, physics, biology, and social history.  Ripples, positive and negative, for politics and economics, i.e. disruptive corporations succeed, then let fearful, bureaucracies limit growth. Why cities have lasted so long, Jericho pushing 10K years. 

Ripples galore for democracy across a divided America as bottom-up, grassroots energy grow but are muffled by urban elites. Size serves cities and large animals,  less so "too big to fail" corporations serving narrow interests, not the majority. Speculations cities prosper by "maximizing greed." Implications for international monoliths more potent than nations, and their duration vs. an average human lifetime.
