These three were written during my Economics revision at uni, or possibly in class. Either way they were written to help me remember the difference between fiscal and monetary policy and various other little nuggets. They’re simply numbered 80, 81 and 82 in my notebook, my way of keeping count of just how many have been written over the years, so are untitled for now. Enjoy!
80Fiscal policy, Tax away our money. Surplus boom, Deficit bust, The budget balances, hopefully.
81Surplus and deficit, Boom and bust. To observe the golden rule, Balance the budget must!
82Think of the economy, As a lump of marble. Fiscal smashes away the surplus, Monetary refines to an artistic marvel.
If only the powers that be had remembered the golden rule.
