USA - Run By 'Old Coots' With Childish Intellects
So I point out to my son that the local *comic book store* just closed shop:
CaptiousDad - Look John, the comic book store is out of business now....It's a bad economy right now, do you know what that means?
Son - Nah.
CaptiousDad - It means that a lot of people don't have jobs....that a lot of people don't have any money these days.
Son - Well....then they should just print more money!
There you have it - the current national economic policy can be intuited by a 7.32 year old!
While my son is certainly very precocious....he hasn't read a lick of economics and so doesn't understand it a little bit - a la Bernanke, Obama, Bush, et al.
