Green Bullshit, Now from WSJ

Motherfucker. I don't know why I read this shit:

Understandable as it may be, cynicism is a damaging and unhealthy way of analyzing Wall Street.

Really? This sort of writing is what causes cynicism in the first place. I mean, look:

Take, for instance, a recent report by Alan Blinder and Mark Zandi that examines the impact of the government's response to the financial crisis. "How the Great Recession Was Brought to An End" suggests that government policies saved about 8.5 million jobs, staved off deflation and boosted gross domestic product — hardly a radical assessment.

Haaardly a radical assessment? Please, fuck me gently with a chainsaw. But, you know, they used mooohdels:

Mr. Blinder concedes that the economic models used for the report aren't fashionable in academic circles, but similar models are still used by the Federal Reserve, Congressional Budget Office along with other government agencies and private companies.

Are you fucking serious? First of all, why the fuck do we need models to predict motherfucking present. It is quite clear to anyone without a motherfucking haaaaarvard degree that, well, shit, economy sort of sucks ass at this time. And, gentlemen, pay attention, the weener dude who penned this abomination is actually on WSJ or Dow Jones staff. Look, Taleb can be a bit of a hothead, but here is a super sane Arnold Kling describing the paper in question:

"unseemly exercise in propaganda dressed up as research."

Cynic? I don't think so. And what makes me really puke le merde vert, is this sub-heading of this cunt of an editorial:

Betrayed by Washington and Wall Street, We Find It Hard To Accept Good News


Hello, White House? Fuck you.
