The state of the economy -- in haiku

This final note today, in which economy-watchers wax poetic.

The Kauffman Foundation does a quarterly survey of economic bloggers, concentrating most of the time on policy questions. This time 'round, they asked for the state of the economy -- in haiku.

We picked some favorites.

David Zetland: Many angry folks / watch political duck soup / less soup back to work.

Felix Salmon: No one has a job / Except econobloggers / And they're not paid much.

Steve Waldman: This is not so hard / Helicopter money please / Wired straight to households.

Hat tip to the Economist magazine for finding it. Here's the full list where you can vote for your favorite.
