Economy
Local Economy :: scott

It gives me some comfort that, even though somewhere in the background a radio blathers doom about the economy, the Fed just can’t seem to raise my interest on this day, though in some homes, or so I’ve heard, values are down so low that families can’t pay attention to each other any more and no one is taking credit and no one is giving credit and credit is coming due and on every frequency English majors are spinning math, going off on tangents, wondering who will cosign now that the markets are exhausted and looking for a place to crash, because I’m not overly taxed by any of this, since none of these are material losses for me, as I lie here with you, taking stock of all your assets, investing in bonds, exploring your options, leveraging insider information, presenting a tender offer, my interest compounding by the second. (Adapted from a blog post I did a few months ago.)
