    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Yeh, give the big banks, a couple of tons of fresh printed money that they can invest overseas and our own small businesses(where the new jobs come from) get the squeeze.
