#rsrh QE2 & Carter II.

While I liked how Glenn snuck a Mythos reference* in when he linked to this story about quantitative easing, there’s one small problem with it: Case NIGHTMARE GREEN was at least a plan.  QE2 is at best a Hail Mary pass.

In other news, we’re starting to see the first local stories about rising food prices.  Inflation and a stagnant economy; who would have thought that we’d ever see such a thing?  We’ll need a word for that, I guess.  Hmm… “Inflatnant?”  No, doesn’t really trip off of the tongue.  Oh, well, I’m sure that we’ll find a suitable term.

*It’s part of the background of Charles Stross’ excellent spy fiction/Cthulhu Mythos mash-up series, the first book of which can be found here.

    “Stagflation” is so last week.

    Im warry of reading non Lovecraft Cthulhu. Your use of the term excellent…I might give it a read.

  • Skip says:

    The Laundry Files are really good, AZR. Think, James Bond and Cthulhu meet Office Space. FYI, the first two are available as audiobooks from Audible if you have a subscription with them, and the reader is pretty good. That’s actually how I “read” them.

    Of course, Stross is in general a pretty good read, despite being a hard lefty. Of the stuff of his I’ve read, only Saturn’s Children left me underwhelmed.

    You should have seen the last three episodes of South Park. That was one hell of a show.

    Just wait until the Misery Index makes a comeback.
