It’s The Economics, Stupid


Economics 101 (or rather Economics 99%) from the common man’s point of view:

Recession:
Watching you losing the battle slowly for your hairline in the mirror every morning due to all the worrying

Inflation:
Effect on the waistline from too many trips to the buffet table

Depression:
What your car hits when Obama’s “shovel-ready” projects have not hit the road. Also what you experiences when you gets the car repair bill and remembers the bank balance (or lack of)

Stagflation:
A bit of S&M in a bachelor party

Double Dip Economy:
Making best use of McDonalds’ new cost cutting moves of offering only one condiment / sauce with its McNuggets

Trickle Down:
If you feed the horse enough oats, some will pass through to the road for the sparrow*

TARP:
Cover given to banks to save them on a rainy day

Occupy Wall Street:
Ensure your kids get plum jobs in Big Bracket firms

Buffett Rules:
All you can eat for a low price, while your secretary pays double

Bush Cuts:
If not extended, Armageddon on 12/31/2012 (and not 12/21/2012 as the Mayans predicted) for the 1%

    You can definitely see your enthusiasm within the work you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart.
