Excuse me ?
Excuse me ?!
I'd like to return thisMargaritaville please.
My dad bought iton a payment plan
that was set up bya finance company
which got their principalinvestors from somebody here.
Oh, that makes sense.
It does ?
You see, son, we lumpedthousands of these
Margaritavilleinstallment plans together
then chopped thosesecurities up in a way
that we could sellthem to banks.
So I can return itto a bank ?
Because a bunch of peoplelike you are defaulting
on their Margaritavillesso the Government had to buy
the Margaritaville assetsfrom the banks.
Just talk to the TreasuryDepartment in DC.
They're the ones who reallyunderstand how all this works.
Oh, sell, sell, sell, sell,sell, sell, sell !
Listen, this isall you need to know.
The Economy is nota supernatural,
The Economy is just an ideamade up by people
thousands of years ago.
The Economyis not real
and yet it is real.
Nowadays they'llgive credit cards
to practically anyone whoapplies for them.
I applied for thisyesterday to prove a point.
It is an American ExpressPlatinum card.
It has no spending limit.
( gasping )
Do not be afraid.
This is only plastic.
It's just somethingmade up by people.
Truly meaningless untilwe put our faith in it.
Faith is what makesan Economy exist.
it is only plastic cardsand paper money.
