The Defunct Economist

Please let me out of this costume.

This is not me.

I am not an economist.

I am irrational

Impetuous

Undisciplined.

The math won’t work on me.

I choose for bad reasons.

I don’t self-correct.

My utility is trapped

In an ethos of

Materialism

That doesn’t add up.

The world suffers.

The goods are poorly distributed.

The gap widens.

The earth loses.

But only for the short-term.

In the long-run

We are all dead.

Keynes, that defunct economist

Is right.
