ROMULO NERI, THE ECONOMIST

March 26, 2008

This is a lesson in the economics of saving souls— maximum benefits at the least cost— courtesy of an economist named Romulo Neri.

Two souls are at stake, his and his President’s.  He tells the truth, he damns his boss.  He tells a lie, he damns his own.  He can’t be too selfish taking care only of himself.  His boss is such a nice woman.

How do you solve this dilemma, economist-style?

Well, throw the problem to an institution.  An institution has no problem about souls.  The Supreme Court is an institution; it has no soul… I mean, like that supposedly humans have.  Perfect shield.  He answers no question, he tells no lie, he tells no truth.  Two souls saved— at no cost.

Neat?

The evil bastard!
