Il Bobolini: The economy is not a human-created thing that is governed by rules that we make up and can change. It is more like a magic castle in the sky, or a beautiful rainforest lost in time where any attempt by mere mortals to alter its magnificent and natural course would cause it to float away on the wings of angels and invisible pixies. I know all of this because a computer guy told me.

And that is why we shouldn’t do anything crazy like ask why the economy just tanked, or who was responsible, or what we might do to prevent it from happening again. And let us certainly not do anything to alleviate the damage that was done. Let’s all just agree to sit back and watch the mystical wonderment of it all unfold.
