The economy in haiku
http://www.economist.com/blogs/freeexchange/2011/10/poe...

THE KAUFFMAN FOUNDATION conducts a quarterly survey of economics bloggers (you can see the third quarter results here). It tends to focus on current economic conditions and policy questions, but the fourth-quarter questionnaire contained something a little different: a challenge to capture the state of the economy in haiku. The results are sublime. Here, for instance, is the contribution from Interfluidity's Steve Waldman:

This is not so hard.
Helicopter money please.
Wired straight to households.

Below the jump, you can read all of the submitted haiku. After having a look, cast a vote for the best one here. And do note, the full results of the Kaufmann survey will be released next week (to which we'll link, no doubt).

Tax the Rich and Now
Borrow to Invest in Stuff
Bring Back the New Deal
- Daniel Gross
