Sad but true. This short article written by Ben Stein provides the best example I’ve read on the current shape of the US economy. He tells the story through the eyes of an American consumer.

Play the Fed Chairman game! I know I talked about this game last week but I can’t stress enough the importance of learning what a central banker does. I can’t think of an easier or enjoyable way to learn than this freakin’ game! What can I say…I’m addicted!
Learn how the Fed uses monetary policy to fight inflation and prevent recessions by actually being one! This is a really fun and easy role-playing game where I guarantee you will learn a lot without suffering from boredom or glossy eyes!
