The New Economy

Also from The Week's Wit & Wisdom, courtesy of Bob Battle in the Washington Times:

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you will
have $49 today. If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you
will have $33. If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers, you
will have $0. But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank
all the beer, then turned in the aluminium cans for a
recycling refund, you
would have $214.

And you would have drunk a lot of beer into the bargain. Brilliant!

If only we had been so farsighted.
