The new sound-sphere is global. It ripples at great speed across languages, ideologies, frontiers and races. The economics of this musical Esperanto is staggering. Rock and pop breed concentric worlds of fashion, setting and life-style. Popular music has brought with it sociologies of private and public manner, of group solidarity. The politics of Eden come loud.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The animals that depend on instinct have an inherent knowledge of the laws of economics and of how to apply them; Man, with his powers of reason, has reduced economics to the level of a farce which is at once funnier and more tragic than Tobacco Road.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Raoul Duke: Well? What are your plans?
Dr. Gonzo: Plans?
Raoul Duke: The child in the bedroom.
Dr. Gonzo: Oh, Lucy. I met her on the plane. Yeah, she's a religious freak. I gave her a cap before I realized... Jesus, she's never even had a drink before.
Raoul Duke: Well... It'll probably work out. We can keep her loaded and peddle her ass at the drug convention. Yeah. She's perfect for this gig. These cops will go fifty bucks a head to beat her into submission and then gang fuck her. We can set her up in one of these back street motels, hang pictures of Jesus all over the room, then turn these fucking pigs loose on her. Hell, she's strong, man. She'll hold her own.
Dr. Gonzo: Jesus Christ. I knew you were sick but I never expected to hear you actually say that kind of stuff, you filthy bastard.
Raoul Duke: Straight economics man. This girl is a God-send. Shit, she can make us a grand a day.
Dr. Gonzo: That's ugly, man. Stop talking like that.
Raoul Duke: I figure she can do about four at a time. If we keep her full of acid that's more like two grand a day. Maybe three.
Dr. Gonzo: Hold on, man. What if I just jump you and beat the dog shit out of you? Would that make you feel better? You filthy bastard.
Raoul Duke: Alright listen to me. In a few hours, she'll probably be sane enough to work herself into some kind of towering Jesus-based rage at the hazy recollection of being seduced by some kind of cruel Samoan who fed her liquor and LSD, dragged her to a Vegas hotel room and then savagely penetrated every orifice in her little body with his throbbing, uncircumcised member.
Dr. Gonzo: That's so ugly, man!
Raoul Duke: Fuck. Truth hurts.
Dr. Gonzo: That's, argh! Argh! That's argh! Argh! That's argh!
Raoul Duke: Argh! Well, you'll go straight to the gas chamber for this one. And even if you manage to beat that, they'll still send you back to Nevada for rape and consensual sodomy. She's got to go.
Dr. Gonzo: Shit. It doesn't pay to try to help someone these days.More [06/12/2007 12:06:00]

We were discussing Philippine economics when we were so rudely interrupted.
My own field! Miss Marlowe was kind enough to listen to me.
They're going to be free in 1946, aren't they?
They are - provided America does not insist on fighting a war with Japan. It's my opinion that that contingency is going to keep the Philippines from being free.
Won't Japan gobble them up?
No offense, but Japan or Canada or anybody else can have the Philippines as far as I'm concerned. It's hot in Manila!
Might even be hotter before long.
Hot enough to go around in shorts?
Ah, there's a Canadian for you! Let them take their clothes off, and they're happy.

When's our first class?
Uh, we got Economics tomorrow at 11 o'clock.
11 o'clock? No good. I got a massage 11 o'clock. Tell 'em to make it 2 o'clock.
No, dad. Uh, you don't get it. They're not gonna re-schedule the classes around your massage.
All right, 11 o'clock, but I'm gonna talk to that Dean. I mean, these classes could be a REAL inconvenience.

I was thinking about taking a home economics class so I can learn how to cook
What for? I can teach you how to cook.
That's okay mom.
Look why not?
Remember when you tried to teach me how to sew? You made me so nervous that I had to go to the hospital to get the thimble taken off.
I guess it wouldn't hurt to take a home economics class.

I have to meet with the school psychiatrist.
Ms. Lindon? What in the hell for?
Well, they say that I don't have enough direction in my life.
Casey... What you need in your life is more disicplne, I think you know that. The kind of discipline that can only be found here in gymnasium class. Casey, if you allow this class to be something in your life, it can be a warm, nurturing embracing nest, like chickens have in a hen house. Know what I mean?
[Confused] I'm gonna go. I'm gonna be late for Ms. Lindon.
Another thing, if I find out it was you that put those bumper stickers on my van, I'm gonna squash your nuts into oblivion. And tell those boys from Home Economics to stop calling my house.

It seems to me that socialists today can preserve their position in academic economics merely by the pretense that the differences are entirely moral questions about which science cannot decide.More [08/14/2011 01:08:55]

No one is going to convince me that if a bunch of white faces had been paraded out there, that the results of this would not have been different.

I learned a good deal about economics, and about America, from the author of the Reagan tax reforms - the great Jack Kemp.
