Today's Sign of The Apocalypse

NY Post:

"Lindsay Lohan is suing the financial company E-Trade, insisting that a boyfriend-stealing, "milkaholic" baby in its latest commercial -- who happens to be named Lindsay -- was modeled after her. And she wants $100 million for her pain and suffering."

Giving Lindsay 100 mil would in fact be quite stimulative. And fair to every part of the economy.

Come to think of it, I can think of no fairer way to implement monetary policy than giving it to Lindsay Lohan via this lawsuit.

She might buy 15 or 20 Mercedes, but maybe 1500 pairs of shoes? Who can say? Maybe she rents a room a Chateau Marmot for two years and rents pay per views? Or all of the above? Everybody would have an equal shot at this money. The trickle down from the drug dealers would be amazing and also have a huge multiplier.

Every industry in America would have a chance to compete for her random spending. And we could do this once a week until we get the Economy on track, just like i read in MMT.

Seriously, she'd be dead in a week.
