Recession-Plagued Nation Demands New Bubble To Invest In*

A panel of top business leaders testified before the Congress about the worsening recession Monday, demanding the government provide Americans with a new irresponsible and largely illusiory economic bubble in which to invest.

"What America needs right now is not more talk and long-term strategy, but a concrete way to create more imaginary wealth in the very immediate future" (...) "We are in a crisis, and that crisis demands an unviable short-term solution".

"(...) The manner of the bubble isn´t important-just as long as it creates a hugely overvalued market based on nothing more than whimsical fantasy and saddled with the potential for a long-term accrual of debts that will never be paid back, thereby unleashing a ripple effect that will take nearly a decade to correct".

(...) "The US economy cannot survive on sound investment alone".

(...) "America needs another bubble" (...) "At this point, bubbles are the only thing keeping us afloat".
