Ambrose Evans-Pritchard argues it here, wild Will Hutton elsewhere (see earlier blogpost) and now another consistent advocate of looninomics, that true Brit, full of the same kind of internationalist manure you'd expect to hear from a dyed-in-the-wool Trot.
I'm beginning to wonder if this whole economic crisis isn't just a really smart - and I mean really smart - plot by business hacks to take over and enslave us.
That's the only reason I can think for them wishing hyperinflation and ruin upon the entire population of the western world. Mind you, the extremist, bailoutist Yank and Brit governments seem to want to take us on the same road to hell. So maybe the hacks are just the Comical Alis of this latest little human catastrophe.
Or it could just be that they want Gordon Brown's babies because they just love the way he talks. It floats their boats.
Looninomics might be contagious, of course. And they hang around the loonies a lot, you know. Well, who actually knows (that's the point)?
I'm not sure which motive or cause is the more weird, to be honest. I am sure that only anarchists and the postmodern economists who got us into this mess agree with these three vapid visionaries. Mind you, my guess is it's who they read - or read. A sad love-in, then.
(Stagflation here we come.)
Tiresome money hacks. Shut-up.
