economics lecture

Today, after a lecture about the rise of the new right and the precarious position of the present economy, my economics professor closes out with this performance – “You all look kind of depressed. But really, you shouldn’t be depressed because…” he trails off genuinely thinking for a reason. After a pregnant pause, a chuckle ran through the lecture hall. “No, really, I’ll think of something.” he says, and then finally says, “Knowledge is Power.”

Really the point being, we’re screwed.
