Welcome to our sociopaths-gone-wild economy

It’s all a question of confidence, don’t cha know? There is no reality, it’s all perception management! Bring out the Plunge Protection Team. The PPT can juggle an infinite number of balls in the air for an infinite amount of time — and never drop a one. Perpetual motion machines work so well — how about a serial bubble economy? Pay the piper? — ha, ha that’s for the little people. Parties never end! Create more debt through derivatives than the amount of monetary value existing in the world? — Brilliant! Hey, why don’t we call that debt, wealth? Capitalism can be risk free! Spread the risk through mortgage backed securities and derivatives — uh, the engine of capitalism is the balancing of risk and reward on an individual level. Conmen do best when unregulated!
