Jump! You Fuckers! News

A little while back someone called John Brissenden was in touch to tell me that he had set up a blog for my article, Jump! You Fuckers! I was so flattered that I then neglected to mention it, pretty much to anyone. So, if you haven't yet read my contribution to the literature of the crash, do pop over to the site and thrill to my jokes 'n' political economy combination.

Since I left Random House, irony of ironies one of the victims of the downturn, I have been turning said article into a short, sharp book. I am trying to persuade print publishers that it would be an idea to make the thing available to people so they can buy it and, I don't know, read it in the bath, on the train, or in the local coffee house. So far a certain scepticism has been in evidence, on the grounds that I have absolutely no credentials or qualifications in economics or finance or politics or pretty much anything else.

My counter-argument, that the problems have been caused by hard-working experts, and can therefore only be solved by feckless amateurs of, at best, average intelligence, hasn't cut much ice.

All I can do, dear readers, is assure you that I for one am not about to start carving up debt in impossibly complicated ways and sell it to naive and gullible institutional investors. Of that you can be quite sure.

i must have missed the reservations closing their casinos, and the aborigines losing their one piece of corrugated iron to big money.

Dammit, naive, naive, not native.

I don't even want to think about the possible reasons for that mis-typing.
