some bailout haiku

Great Greater Greatest
Depression strikes because of
Corporate welfare.

Greater Depression
Economic fascism
Socialism wins

Corporate welfare.
Citizens know who to blame:
Capitalism!

It’s simple, really:
marginal utility
also works with cash.

Federal Reserve.
How many coups are hidden?
1913 was.

Spend your money now
Dollars piled in wheelbarrows
Fractional reserve

Cantillon effects:
mo’ money mo’ money mo’ …
But who gets it first?

Richard Nixon said,
“We are all Keynsians now.”
Look where it got us.

The Austrian school
of economic theory
has taught them nothing.

Back-room deal, Plan B:
If at first you don’t succeed
threaten martial law

(Update: please note John Kyle’s additional bailout haikus in the comments below.)
