The Market (Or: And You Thought God Was a Prick)

A clear, concise expression of everything that's fucked up in modern economic theory:
After the 8.9-magnitude earthquake in Japan failed to induce a market nosedive, CNBC’s Larry Kudlow expressed his relief in terms that seemed to appall even his fellow cheerleaders for capitalism: “The human toll here,” he declared, “looks to be much worse than the economic toll and we can be grateful for that.”
Yeah, whatever...

  1. Yeah, kind of thinking the "we" part of that is a little presumptuous.
