My Sentiments Exactly

Helicopter Ben fires up the engine

Will this work? Damned if I know, and I bet Bernanke doesn't either. It should work, in theory. But while in theory, theory is the same as practice, in practice, they differ. These days, more sharply every day.
Damned if I know. Just how I feel about the whole thing. But I'm not spending all my time pretending I know, or admitting I don't know over & over. I'm starting to think all economic discourse, like Jim Cramer, should be made illegal.

At least she defined quantitative easing for her readers and linked to a Wikipedia article on a quasi-obscure figure. That's more substantive information on matters other than her personal life and diet, in-house goings-on at The Atlantic, and how many of the newest, bestest toys she can afford to buy than what is the norm.

==========================
I can economic discourse with anybody's arse.

It all started when I had to explain why I couldn't write my papers on time.

And continues to this day (and moment...I need to be working on an effing "narrative" for loan committee, and I DONT WANNA DO ITTTTTTTTTTT!!!ONE).

P.S. Beryllium.

If you look at who is actually editing the business channel, it's pretty clear it's conor clarke.

I wonder if he'll take her spot; he's writing frequently on the guardian.

"Will this work? Damned if I know. And damned if I'm going to do any research, analysis, speculation, or use any of my fake 'expertise' to shed any light on the subject. That would take professional effort and I'd really rather make pancakes."
