Sadly, this is as good advice as any right now.

Eventually, all this increased money supply is going to cause some bitchin’ inflation, which will make that case of Scotch you have worth more than gold. Think about it.

So you are the finance minister of an exporting nation that no longer exports. Is there any other option other than simply getting plastered for the G7 press conference ?

I don’t speak Japanese unfortunately – but I do speak “Drunkenese” on occasion….

The Undisputed Champion of the World

The Undisputed Champion of the World

It’s here, and for better or worse, the American “Economic Stimulus Package” will soon be gushing out from Washington, barrelling down gutters, and spilling over the dry, parched, and broken lawns of suburbia. 789 Billion imperial gallons of Change, metric tonnes of Hope, cubic dollars of panic. One great and final shot before the economic meteor shatters the American Way.

Like a legion of Dr. Strangelove’s – huddled around monitors in bunkers of ivory, glass, and internet – Economists have emerged and formed up ranks to debate the outcome be it hit, miss, or spare. But economics is a young pursuit, its myths and hero’s not much older than America itself, both siblings of an age of social upheaval and economic revolution. Economic theory, like the only world we know, is still a malleable, unfinished science. The sad and miserable fact of economic thought being simply…that nobody really knows, and the depth of head scratching really depends on which team of economic thought one plays for.

The Best Seat In The House

The Best Seat In The House

U.S. polls indicate Americans remain enthusiastic about their president but not so regarding his economic stimulus plan.  But as a teacher, used to the silence and blank stares of a classroom, I’ve got a different take on their antipathy.  It’s not that they don’t support the plan, they don’t get it.  And what you don’t get-in this case, quite rightly-you fear.

 North Americans-hell, people in general-have become so dumbed down, so coddled by the 15-second sound byte, it’s no wonder the finer points of an $800 billion dollar lifeline get lost in translation.  But in this case, Joe Public’s not alone.  ‘Cause while everyone’s got an opinion-what will work, what won’t-no one knows for sure.  Not you or I, Republicans or Democrates; the brash (unaccountable) media, and certainly not the economists who advise them.  And while the theory of jolting the economy back to life with government spending is a good one-hell, it worked for Roosevelt, right?-that’s all it is, economic theory, like betting red when black’s on a roll . . . or betting black for exactly the same reason.  The streak’s bound to change eventually, right?  Well sure . . . unless it remains the same.
