Every Village Has An Idiot

I think we all see where I'm going with this...

You can always find a tool in the shed, to do the job. 

If you want a tool to tell you that it's ok to print money to buy stocks, you can find one. It doesn't mean you should use it, but he's available nevertheless. And of course, if he wasn't dusting off his PhD thesis from four decades ago, he would be playing with his rubik's cube instead. Because what else would he be doing. 

And you can always find some tool to tell us that borrowing yet more money is the secret to fixing a debt problem. Again, he'll be a specious jackass in every respect, but he serves his purpose, for those who seek the simplest answers to every problem.  

In other words, there's always a market for idiots. But the key to survival is not to be shopping for one in the first place.
