On the subject of politics and finance--I thought the story Ayn Rand's Lord of the rings amusing.

You may not agree with the political bent of this blurb--but you may find it amusing none the less:
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."
— John Rogers
Oh, I agree with that blurb all right!!
"But here you are, in the ninth
Two men out and three men on
Nowhere to look but inside
Where we all respond to PRESSURE!" - Billy Joel
