Stein on the Economy
When I think about the economy I think about a plump man who has just been hit by a truck while crossing a street and is in severely critical condition with internal bleeding. Instead of just stabilizing his hemorrhaging, the doctor decides that while the patient is unconscious, he might as well also do a face lift, some coronary bypasses and a stomach stapling to keep him from gaining weight while he is recovering (if he does recover). After all, a crisis is not to be wasted.
