The Twilight Zone, Or Our Economy Explained

Abby Zimet

The world's most cogent, hilarious, depressing analysis
of Ben Bernanke, Goldman Sachs, blowing up the global economy,
quantitative easing - a.k.a. printing a ton of money - and why we are
all screwed. From the people who explained the Tea Party to us.

“Why not call it the printing money?” asks the straight guy/bear. “Because the printing money is the last refuge of failed economic
empires and banana republics and the Fed doesn’t want to admit this is
their only idea.”
