Paul Krugman, resident genius of Enron and the New York Times, suggests that Obama should be willing to mint a Trillion dollar U S coin. May we suggest, the Freddie Krugerrand?

    1. Reminds me of the ancient Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times!

    2. Interesting is no fun at all! Those Chinese bastards can really put terrible curses on you.

    3. I studied a little Chinese history back in college. In fact my paper was on Chinese technological discoveries. The ancient Chinese ideal (paraphrased) was to find the one perfect way of doing things and then, never stray from it. That's one of the reasons that while in the West, new technologies and techniques fed upon each other, accelerating change, similar technological discoveries in China were not exploited as such, often frowned upon...until they were appropriated by the West!

  2. You are an artistic genius!

    But I expect no less from a fellow member of the Guild Guild...

    1. Thank ye kindly! Maybe they'll commission me to do the coin?
