In honor of the World Bank's limited edition blog of 2008-2009, Crisis Talk, here is a poem from Martin Dickson, deputy editor of the Financial Times, on the worst excesses of the financial crisis:
"To moral hazard give no thought!
We see no need to get distraught.
Please rest assured God’s work we’re doing
(It’s merely taxpayers we’re screwing.)
The Lord to us has sent a sign:
Monopoly profits are just fine."
