“Impovernment of the booble by the bauble for the bubble.” — Finnegans Wake.


Remark on this. Obviously a play on “Government of the people for the people by the people”, (which phrase this Post article says predates the Gettysburg Address.) Impovernment looks a little like improvement but I think impoverishment is the clearer sense. The impoverishment of the people (boobies) by the bauble (by the trinkets and gadgets they are induced to buy?) for the bubble (stock market bubble/ commodity speculation?) Idea of a stock market “bubble” has been around for centuries.
