On the current economic crisis

From the ever amusing Daily Mash:

Julian Cook, chief economist at Corbett and Barker, said: "The government will give your money to the banks so the banks can start lending you that money, probably at around 7% APR. Thanks to all the interest you're paying on your own money, the banks will make billions of pounds again and normality will be restored. After a few years of this the government will cash in the bank shares it bought with your money and use the profits to build a huge fucking dome somewhere." He added: "In case you hadn't already worked it out - the entire global financial system is predicated on the assumption that you're an idiot."
I'm not saying it is fact, but there is a certain ring of truth to it...
