The credit crunch is getting so bad now, I can hardly look. So I thought I'd post a nice picture of a pussy cat to help us take our minds off things.
In the meantime, though it stands absolutely no chance of being enacted, there is a reasonably robust way out of this crisis, though it does entail the creation of a 100% reserve gold-backed currency. Like I said, no chance. But this life belt is out there if anybody wants it. Just ask nice Uncle George, one of the few men alive who ever had sufficient balls and brains to argue toe-to-toe with Uncle Murray. Which means that Uncle George is a Colossus and possibly the nearest thing we have to a living John Galt. If only the numskull powers-that-be had the wit to replace Bernanke or King with this man, then we would stand a fighting chance of getting out of this mess. Like I said, no chance. (At least for the moment.)
But at least Uncle George is still offering us his solutions. If things keep going the way that they are, then we may be forced sooner rather than later to take him up on them. John Galt may triumph, after all.
Bring it on.
