Once upon a time there was capitalism

LONDON-The International Herald Tribune publishes a futuristic satire on current economic, social, and environmental crises facing the globe.

In the satire Grandfather Benny — a caveman caricature of Ben Shalom Bernanke, incumbent Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve — narrates the fall of capitalism to his curious grandson. The narration cites public disregard of water scarcity as an alarm bell signaling the Gigantic Global Bubble Burst of 2008.
