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.
