Earlier this month I threatened to lampoon Federal Reserve Governor Ben Bernanke's speech about the gold standard and the Great Depression.
I've decided not to lampoon it — not because it doesn't deserve it, but because someone else has already done the job. And quite well, too, despite an uncomfortable lack of pirate humor.
Spake thusly the Mogambo Guru (he gets to the Bernanke speech about halfway through the rant):
It's very long, but very amusing, at least by the standards of economic humor. Which are a dismal as everything else in the science. Which is why I love it.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to "Arrr&hellip" softly as I run my fingers through a pile of gold coins for a wee bit, and then I need to hunt for more leprechauns. The trick is to realize that pirate swords make fine dowsing rods — and that the little guys are right curious to see a demonstration. Arrr, it's too easy!
