For the second time this week I’ve woken up feeling ever so slightly queasy – probably something I ate. So it was appropriate that I would read, whilst browsing The Times Online, a letter written to the editor.
Sir, “Quantitative easing” is far too cumbersome a phrase. I suggest that we truncate the phrase into a more manageable term: “Queasing”. Much easier to pronounce and carries with it the slightly queasy feeling that one naturally feels when trying to save the economy from imminent collapse.
Somehow that seems appropriate, considering how crappy I am feeling today.
