Haiku Economics

I'm not much of a haiku kind of guy, but I suppose that shouldn't stand in the way. I received the following from Stephen T. Ziliak, Professor of Economics at Roosevelt University and pioneer of "haiku economics":

Moral sentiment –
Not even Hayek would want
a shuttered White House

Affordable care -
A man in the house dining
on my last food stamp

October sunset –
The debt ceiling turns Boehner
red-orange and pink

Red October sun -
The debt ceiling is burning
Boehner a real tan

When I was in school
quantitative easing was
largely sophistry

“O Captain! My Captain!
The ship’s weather’d every rack” –
at the Goodwill store
