After extensive research, we've found the underlying causes for Americans' seeming inability to understand the economic environment they've landed themselves in. It turns out, after close inspection, that all of our failure to understand the world of finance stems from a few simple misconceptions that have arisen over the past few decades.

"The Government" is actually the name of a taco stand in the DC area which has somehow fallen into massive debt, specifically to China, where many of its creditors and investors live.

"The Fed" is actually the name of a marginally successful loanshark company also in the DC area, which explains why we've seen reports of wildly fluctuating, unstable interest rates in recent years.

"The Federal Reserve" is actually the name of a factory in Maryland which prints boardgame money for such popular titles as 'Monopoly', 'Monopoly on Ice', 'The Game of Life', and a new game released in 2010, 'The Wallstreet Bailout'.

"The Housing Bubble" was actually the name of a real estate firm whose headquarters were based in Georgia. The Building collapsed in March of 2007 during a massive storm that hit the area, causing massive panic to home owners everywhere when news spread that "The housing bubble had collapsed."

With these misconceptions cleared up, perhaps we can begin to look at economics in a less panicked, misinformed manner, and perhaps many people's erroneous ideas about economics and politics can be corrected. This is not the first time such confusion has been uncovered; in 1814, British troops entering Paris found that "Napoleon" was not a person, however "Napoleon's" was indeed the name of a very successful chain of bakeries which had 'taken Europe by storm', but which had declined invitations to set up shop in Britain, effectively "Blockading" the country. For some reason however, attempts to build franchises in Russia failed miserably, and in 1812 they were forced to lay off almost all of the 600,000 employees in Russian branch stores.

What misconceptions the future will hold is anyone's guess, but now that we understand this phenomenon better, some candidates are already on our list, from the shaky financial situation of the "Greece" theme park and boardwalk in Athens to the Coastal, uninhabited, earthquake and flood-prone region of "Lowlying Holland" in Northern Siberia.

I opened this account because I needed a way to communicate to someone else exactly what sorts of infrastructure development I was using in Sim City 4, but hey; now that I have an account maybe I'll put other stuff here too. Don't expect master paintings or anything though.

I like Graph Paper.
