“Wisdom from the Land of Econia” / Memorable Fancies #1288

In the land of Econia, the more you enjoy your job the less you are paid, and vice versa. The trade of Parole Officer, for instance, has become very attractive to people who want to do well in life, as has the position of Pig Semen Collector.

Hedge-fund managers, however, who play computer games all day with other peoples’ money, are paid minimum wage.

In this way, the Econians compare themselves favorably to the Americans, whose economic practice is just the opposite.
