A little fun is allowed: The week’s Econ Haiku poll

Because the dismal science shouldn’t be so dismal, here’s the weekly silliness. Vote for your favorite Econ Haiku — and if the muse bites, write your own on the comments field.

Vote for your favorite Econ Haiku of the week(poll)

The contenders:

Monday:

Are fears inflated?

Bonds are worried. Not the Dow

Watch the CPI

Tuesday:

Those clever bankers

Don’t need no stinkin’ new rules

New fees will do fine

Wednesday:

A tip for Starbucks:

Is Job One fighting in court

Over the coin jar?

Thursday:

Jobless claims are down

Euphoria will stay up

If this trend is real

Friday:

Derivative rules

Headed off by lobbyists

Are we chumps or what?
