Politics, life, and other things that matter

Potemkin Pillage

Posted by Charles II on February 1, 2007

A minor note on how manufactured our reality is. As mentioned below, GDP growth was above expected, plus the Fed kept rates steady. The stock market shot up by about a percent over a few minutes. And guess what?

Our Dear Leader arrived on the floor of the stock exchange just in time to receive the cheers of his subjects.

Aside from the timing, this is, according to CNBC, only the second time in American history that a president has appeared on the exchange during trading hours.

For these guys, everything is politics.
