Just wondering has anyone noticed members of the Church of the Free Market falling to their knees saying they are sorry, they are wrong and please please help ickle them? Because I don’t know about you but continued arrogance in the face of one’s own absolute failure is y’know just a tad unattractive (just a tip there oligarchs and masters of the universe). I mean at least Patrick Bateman has the excuse he is severely mentally ill (and fictional).
The head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Dominique Strauss-Kahn, had earlier urged the EU to take co-ordinated action, saying the financial crisis was presenting Europe with a “trial by fire”.
Europe’s biggest economies have agreed to work together to support financial institutions – but without forming a joint bail-out fund. French President Nicolas Sarkozy hosted the meeting of the leaders of Britain, Germany and Italy in Paris.
Srsly dudes, are university courses right now being stopped and economics and business students told to go home while they figure out a new syllabus because all the made up shit they’ve been parroting for decades is demonstrably utter-fucking-bollocks. Because if that is happening (and it should) it’s failed to make it into the nooz meejah.
Of course my problem is a lack of the correct perspective…Oh noes, the system we used to get richer than ever has collapsed because no one trusts anyone anymore (who knew everyone lying and fucking each other over to get obscenely rich might have consequences, we’re not psychic for chrissakes!). Our assets are all completely made up! Quick, rescue the system before we stop getting richer than ever, give ’em some shit about small businesses not being able to get loans or making payrolls, all of which they managed to do for centuries before our system came into play (erm, don’t say that last bit). No keep telling them they need our unregulated untaxed shit, change isn’t the answer, mending the rails for our runaway train of our greed is. And don’t, do not let them get the idea we should be blamed we need to ensure that remains redirected towards workers, unions and the unemployed. Why the fuck do you think we own the fucking media? The world is failing us, we cannot fail, we are Teh Awesome. All Ur Kapital R Belong 2 Us.
