Today an attempt was made to explain the term “fiscal cliff” to a local resident and long time unemployed man. The use of imagery and comparisons caused this local man to increase his awareness of the situation by a significant factor.
This is a significant feat taking into account the fact that this particular specimen has no awareness whatsoever about anything else, including his own pitiful existence, the researchers who conducted the experiment claim.
This also goes a long way towards reaching out to the lowest common denominator of the US population regarding matters vital to the national economy.
They intend to repeat the experiment next week, by including this local man into a panel of economists debating the risks of the fiscal cliff.
