In 2009, researchers reported the discovery of “Darwinius masillae,” a small lemur-like creature that lived some 47 million years ago. Many paleontologists have postulated that D. masillae was the missing link, marking the point at which the evolutionary lineage of humans diverged from that of more distant primates.
It seems to us that, in the recent debate about accountable care organizations, one could also detect a missing link.
