Seeing the economy in a humorous light

I can’t believe that three weeks have passed since my last post. Where have they gone?! How come it’s 2009 already?!

Anyhow, although it’s 10 days late, Happy New Year to everyone!

But as it’s clearly not an entirely happy new year for the global economy – except for those fortunate few who have enough money to make even more money out of the global economic downturn, here are some cartoons to make you smile… even if that smile is more wistful, ironic or wry than feel-good cheerful.
