Always-entertaining McSweeney’s just published a (fake) economist’s speech which begins as follows and goes on to say that the economic recovery won’t be U-shaped or V-shaped but rather “an equilateral polygon crossed with a trapezoid parallelogram.” Funny stuff:
The economy is going to get better slowly. The economy is also going to get better fast. Or vice-versa. It will definitely be one or the other. Or something in between. It’s just an issue of sooner or later, more or less. The opposite is probably true, too.
