Restarting the economy   Leave a comment

Here’s an interesting satire on unemployment, parodying the argument that  increasing our spending is the best way to restart the economy and the job market.

I also noticed that the logical character character is overweight, female, wears glasses in an effort to drown out her reasoning by caricaturing stereotypes. This simply adds to the overall message of the clip, that the issue of unemployment cant be solved through capitalist purchasing of unnecessary goods the media deems “cool”.
