Whimsical Wednesday # 239

Welcome back to Whimsical Wednesday!

The day for your googled giggle that gets you over the hump that is Wednesday and sliding down into the weekend.

Economics
The science of explaining tomorrow why the predictions you made yesterday didn't come true today.

That sounds about right :)

    1. fishducky; I'm sure it sounds right to the economists too, they seem to be able to explain away everything.

  3. Economists make weather forecasters appear 100% accurate every day.

    1. Andrew; I often wonder what school economists went to since their math doesn't always make sense; certainly their budgets are way out of reach.

    1. peppylady (Dora); worrying won't change anything and mostly it's a waste of time. I never worry over things I can't change.

  9. Industrialists control today's economics. the would be Henry F's and Rockefellers? employ a new machine to produce a staple commodity which is more cheaply produced, puts millions on the dole thus making the product un-affordable; costing the Govt Quids in handouts and puts the industrialists in a higher tax bracket.
    On the other hand you have Five fingers; They may also be used in conjunction with the other hand depending whether you are right or left inclined to work out the mess when the original 43,7 of the statistics originally compiled for the accurate profitability of the machine were assessed by a bunch of Port swilling boardroom buffoons with less brain than a rocking-horse.

    1. Vest; things may have been a little different if the boardroom buffoons had swilled tea instead of Port.

  10. Wisdom as well as humour in that one. I often think we ordinary people get it right far more often than do the powers that be.

    1. Mimsie; yes we do. I suppose because we are only managing our own small economies, while 'they' are managing, or trying to manage, the economies of an entire country.
