The SF Business Times recently ran an article with this headline "Goldilocks is dead, CSI looking for the body, says Wells economist." Of course I was quite shaken up. I always thought Goldilocks sounded like such a nice girl. Well actually when you think about it, she was kind of a bad seed. Breaking and entering into her neighbors the Bears' house. Then she kind of ransacked the place eating various bowls of porridge leaving some partially eaten as a sort of sick "up yours" to the hungry Bear family who's secluded hideaway home was hit by this hoyden, and disturbing the very private sleeping areas of two of the family members. Yes momma and poppa bear did not get along well anymore and they had taken to sleeping in separate beds but they did not deserve her intrusion. Then she shamelessly laid out in the under aged Baby Bear's bed. Yes this girl certainly was living a dangerous life so it's no wonder she died. I know those CSI people will dust for prints and do some tests and find the killer real soon.
Oh wait? It appears the article was actually referencing an end to the middle-of-the-road economy we had been in for some time. With crude rising, fuel costs, and jobless numbers reaching recessionary levels, the so-called Goldilocks economy we were in, the one that was neither too slow to displace workers nor too strong to fuel inflation, is over. As stated by the aforementioned tangentially but never by name, Scott Anderson: "It's starting to feel like a CSI episode out there. Nobody's found Goldilocks' body yet, but investigators are on the case looking for someone to blame," said Scott Anderson, senior economist at the San Francisco bank Wells Fargo.
