Welcome To Fantasy Econoland

Welcome To Fantasy Econoland
If you cannot afford a trip down to Disney Land because of this recession, there is a new attraction in town - Fantasy Econoland. Among the thrilling experiences are:

Currency high-roller: Float like a butterfly with the euro and drop like a stone with the pound!

Chamber of horrors: Tremble at the wailing of distressed debt!

Fiscal fantasyland: Watch the economy shrivel before your very eyes as you
struggle to stop growth falling!

Bankrupt Britain: Pit your wits against the government as you try to sink sterling and bring the country to its knees!

The Severe Contest: Try your strength against a bear market!

How sad that we are experiencing the horrors of this recession, promising to live a frugal and debt-free life, but in another year or so, we may just lose ourselves in Fantasy Econoland again.

By the way, if you need a tour guide, Timothy Geithner and Ben Bernanke will be showing you around the place which is guaranteed to be a memorable experience.

And don't worry about losing money. These guys will bail you out when the fun is over.
