Alcohol intoxication and alcohol withdrawal
For some reason, our governments last year infusion of a massive stimulus into the retrenched and dying economy and later withdrawing it reminds me of the parallel in alcohol intoxication and alcohol withdrawal both of which cause delirium tremens (DTs) and are potentially fatal. Although I am not an economist, I see very little wisdom in the governments drunken behavior and wild mood swings. I wish Washington would act more thoughtfully and avoid these dangerous CT like gyrations.
