image for Greenmold Admits He Grew too Fond of Unregulated Markets, Oops!
Rugged capitalist Atlas shrugged, and the global economy was dropped into the void! Oops!?

Preeminent Economics guru Greenmold told the world that he is not to blame for the greenish-black spreading stains that mar the US and world economies despite his ruling presence for decades of deregulation and naive free marketeering.

Greenmold held sway throughout the PaPa Bush, Clinton and part of the Baby Bush administrations. His word was gospel and now we see it had even more myth than the four gospels and the apocrypha.

Greenmold admits that he grew too fond of the free market and the deregulation that fueled the real estate bubble that , now having burst, has the world economy in free market free fall: "I was a disciple of ZMilton Friedman and tutored by Ayn Rand. Now I realize that when the lassaiz faire capitalist Atlas shrugs, the whole global economy is dropped into the void!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
