Small-time Crooks

Krugman notes that James Bond’s nemesis SPECTRE was a small-time organization compared to Wall Street’s bankers.

The SPECTRE of Inequality

SPECTRE only asked for 100 million pounds ($2 billion, converted and adjusted for inflation) to ransom two nuclear warheads.

AIG got $182 billion for blowing up the economy. Paulson got $3.7 billion all by himself.

Don’t think it escaped my attention that Krugman can outthink and outwrite me, even when he’s home sick. I think I’ll go work in the yard.
