It is your patriotic duty to...

...lock up the pessimistic economists.

I wasn't even aware of this:


For some reason I'm strangely flattered. Economists now have suddenly become so important that they are competing with the likes of Benjalina, Spears, and NFL for screen time, the new administration's (yay!) appointments to the economic advisers have received much more attention than any of their predecessors, and everyone is suddenly eager to learn more about Keynes and macroeconomics (sadly, not so much about monetary theories, which is my domain).

The possibility of us actually becoming a national threat just makes it all the better.
