Mooney-Onmeass prepares his Nobel Speech

The number of students coming out of British schools with perfect grades after a hardly notable academic career of collages and parent produced science projects is about to overwhelm the university system with below average straight A's freshmen. At the same time, the British economic system is reporting a similar kind of monetary inflation matched by work slowdown.

Oxford economist, Makim Mooney-Onmeass, believes the two phenomena have joined together in a kind of convergence that illustrates the relationship between a downward spiral of less and less valuable currency with a parallel development of more people sitting on their bums:

"I'm hoping that my Nobel Prize will come from these idle observations while Dad and Mum are still paying off my college loans."

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