I read Eat the Rich by P.J. O’Rourke while traveling, and it’s typical O’Rourke, which means funny. After claiming he understands zero economcis — most of us don’t — he does profess to know how economics is usually understood.
After two semesters at college:
I. There are a lot of graphs
II. I’d better memorize them
III. Or get last year’s test
After three drinks at most bars:
I. There are only so many things in the world, and somebody is taking my share
II. All payment for work is underpayment
II. All business is crime
A. Retailers are thieves
B. Wholesalers are pimps
C. Manufacturers are slave drivers
IV. All wealth is the criminal conspiracy among:
C. Pirates in neckties on Wall Street
Oh, how much time I’ve spent in school defending the pirates in neckties and those Evil Corporations they work for.
