Why is everybody so upset with Bernanke?

He is just following the rules.

LOL that is so true, except he didn't read the rule that prohibits the bank from bailing out their favorite bankrupt players over and over.

And we've all played that game and know there is always one winner---everyone else loses.

Comparing classic Monopoly game money, and euro currency notes, suggests 'life is a game'

Both with 7 different denominations in pretty different colours, topping at the 500 note that is a fetish in the game and in life

Exact same denominations, excepting Monopoly has a $1 note, while euro has a €200 note

Euro currency perhaps topped Monopoly in the palette of colours, the euro notes spanning the 7 colours of the spectrum, with red instead of pink, but including purple and indigo, while Monopoly has white

Euro notes upscaling the art, differing designs suggesting the ages of human and European archictectural history, from ancient times to modern

But still just pretty paper (cotton with euro notes) ... as they say, all of life remains to a degree like what one experiences in childhood and youth
