Calvin & Hobbes on the economy.

Postby Individual » Thu Feb 12, 2009 12:04 am

This comic is 15-years-old, but somebody just shared it with me, and it seems great... and pretty relevant. :)

The comic is here:

Kid looks a bit like a young Dick Cheney...
"The serene and peaceful mind is the true epitome of human achievement."-- Ajahn Chah, Living Dhamma

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

I just love Calvin & Hobbes :jumping:

That is a brilliant cartoon, high finance explained in 10 seconds.

That is why I considered Cartoons an amazing form of art, Bill Watterson is a cartoon master.

A colleague of mine introduced me to Calvin & Hobbes last year. I love it!

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
