The Bond Vigilante

Tom the Dancing Bug is one of the best comics out there; I was going through the archives and came across this one that I’d somehow missed. It’s actually an excellent explanation of how bond traders (who never seem to object to tax cuts for the rich) pretend to freak out when the government thinks about spending money. Said Bill Clinton on having this explained to him when he took office:

You mean that the economic program and my re-election depend on the Federal Reserve and a bunch of fucking bond traders?

To which the answer was, yes.

Pretty much every other comic is a winner too (the Lucky Ducky ones could be a book in themselves).
