Queen has economists by the “crown jewels”


At last! Someone (other than a politician) with real “power” is asking the necessary questions of what in the world has happened in the world? And the feedback is not very positive. In fact, it is pointing to a fundamental lack in that area of exeprtise. What area is that? Economics.

According to a report by Matthew Lynn (a columnist for bloomberg.com), the Queen of England has asked the leading professors at the London School of Economics, why the credit crunch was not predictable. With all the brains and advice to governments at their fingertips, the professors have been unable to satisfactorily answer the Queen’s question.

If you are 30 or older you will think this is hilarious!!!!

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking Twenty-five miles to school every morning. Uphill… barefoot… BOTH ways.

Yadda, yadda, yadda!

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had it and how easy they’ve got it! Read the rest of this entry
