PJ O'Rourke on the crisis

Not NOT PJ -- our regular columnist -- but the real PJ: PJ O'Rourke, explaining how Adam Smith would fix the financial crisis:
" How would Adam Smith fix the present mess? Sorry, but it is fixed already. The answer to a decline in the value of speculative assets is to pay less for them. Job done."

If you haven't booked tickets to hear more pithy wisdom from PJ in Auckland on April 30, then you're sure as hell missing out. Do it now.
