Here are some great jokes on the global economy:
Three guys decide to play a round of golf: a priest, a psychologist and an economist.
They get behind a very slow two-some, who, despite a caddy, are taking all day to line up their shots and four-putting every green, and so on.
By the 8th hole, the three men are complaining loudly about the slow play ahead and swearing a blue streak, and so on.
The priest says,
“Holy Mary, I pray that they should take some lessons before they play again.”
The psychologist says,
“I swear there are people that like to play golf slowly.”
The economist says,
“I really didn’t expect to spend this much time playing a round of golf.”
By the 9th hole, they have had it with slow play, so the psychologist goes to the caddy and demands that they be allowed to play through. The caddy says O.K., but then explains that the two golfers are blind, that both are retired firemen who lost their eyesight saving people in a fire and that explains their slow play and would they please not swear and complain so loud.
The priest is mortified, he says,
“Here I am a man of the cloth and I’ve been swearing at the slow play of two blind men.”
The psychologist is also mortified, he says,
“Here I am a man trained to help others with their problems and I’ve been complaining about the slow play of two blind men.”
The economist ponders the situation-finally he goes back to the caddy and says,
“Listen, the next time could they play at night?”
World leaders Ed and Jim are taking a break from a long summit.
Jim says to Ed, “Ed, you know, I have a big problem I don’t know what to do about. I have a hundred bodyguards and one of them is a traitor. I don’t know which one.”
“Not a big deal Jim.” Ed responds. “I’m stuck with a hundred economists I have to listen to all the time before any policy decision and only one tells the truth.”
“That sounds like the same situation.” Jim says.
“Yes,” replies Ed. “But in my case, it’s never the same one!”
Three leading economists took a small plane to the wilderness in northern Canada to hunt moose over the weekend.
The last thing the pilot said was, “Remember, this is a very small plane and you will only be able to bring ONE moose back.”
But of course, they killed one each and come Sunday, they talked the pilot into letting them bring all three dead moose onboard.
So just after takeoff, the plane stalled and crashed.
In the wreckage, one of the economists woke up, looked around and said,
“Where the hell are we?”
The other economist replied, “Oh, just about a hundred yards east of the place where we crashed last year.”
This is one of the best jokes ever on the global economy…
They say that Christopher Columbus was the first economist. When he left to discover America, he didn’t know where he was going; when he got there he didn’t know where he was, and it was all done on a government grant.
Stay tuned for more great humor on the global economy.
