I'm getting another headache! I find it difficult reading children's books at a time like this.
Economics 101: Who’s Bailing Out Whom?
Modern Math a la Wall Street
1 + 1 = A Minus $700,000,000,000 (give or take a few hundred billion) for US Taxpayers
On the Arts & Entertainment Front: Wall Street’s Got Rhythm
Have you heard about the new CEO dance craze? It’s called the Fiorina Fandango! It follows a complicated and incoherent series of steps which are difficult to master. Here’s how it goes: You dance with a female partner who has two left, economically challenged feet. Said partner whirls you around the dance floor until you’re dizzy, slips her hand in your back pocket, and then waltzes away with your wallet!
And how about the Alan Greenspan Fed Chairman Cha-cha? There are no set “regulated” choreographed steps for this dance. Your male partner steps around the ballroom in all directions oblivious to the beat of the music and the fact that he is bumping into other people and knocking them off their feet. After your partner returns home, he writes a book about his prowess on the dance floor entitled We Three: Anna Pavlova, Alvin Ailey, and Me.
P.S. Don’t forget to ask Santa to leave YOU a golden parachute under your Christmas tree this year!
