The Twilight Zone, Or Our Economy Explained

by
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.”

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
