A(n un)funny link.

Thought I should share the unique humour of the Federal Open Market Committee. This, as you know, the vital committee that sets a lot of US Federal Reserve policy, and they’ve just opened up their minutes from 2006. While others have leapt on the economical and political aspects – what where these people thinking, right at the time when everything went wrong? – the Economist has more interestingly decided to let us see some of the remarks that, according to the minutes, provoked “[laughter]”.

These vary from bad jokes to very bad jokes, to baffling “what are they even laughing at?” moments. I think it’s uproariously hilarious.

You can find the Economist blog article HERE.
