Pull Quote of the Day: The Police Know The Truth
From Constance Ash’s discussion of Capitalism: A Love Story:
There are some scenes that that must have been shot around the period when enraged screwed-over people gathered at the New York Stock Exchange yelling, “Jump! Jump! Jump!” Moore has said in an interview, that while at the NYSE the NY cops came up to him and the crew. He told them “Hey guys, we’re just here to film a little comedy and we won’t be long,” thinking they were going to run him and crew off. The cops responded, “Mike, these bastards took a billion and a half dollars out of our police retirement fund so you just take your time.” [emphasis mine]
The real damage is known, and yet to come. Can we start us the term “jobless, pensionless recovery,” or do we have to wait until Justin Fox realizes it?
