Economics and Politics... Child's View

  1. A little boy goes to his dad and asks, 'What is

    Dad says, 'Well son, let me try to explain it this

    I am the head of the family , so call me The

    Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we
    call her the Government.

    We are here to take care of your needs, so we will
    call you the People.

    The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class.

    And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.

    Now think about that and see if it makes sense.'

    So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what
    Dad has said.

    Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so
    he gets up and finds that the baby has severely soiled
    his diaper.

    He then goes to his parent's room and finds his mother
    asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the
    nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the
    keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He
    gives up and goes back to bed.

    The next morning, the little boy says to his father,
    'Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics

    The father says, 'Good, son, tell me in your own words
    what you think politics is all about.'

    The little boy replies, 'The President is screwing the
    Working Class while the Government is sound asleep.
    The People are being ignored and the Future is in deep
