The Plot of “Watchmen” Could Fix The Economy

We’ll fully admit being confused by all the different strategies people put forward on how to fix the economy. We here at Tu Vez are all educated, but not in anything useful like economics or business. I was a theater major, which qualifies me to do absolutely nothing productive in this world. Economists argue about what the best solution is, and it’s hard to know who is right. Paul Krugman seems like a smart guy, and in this video he puts forth a strategy that makes total sense: fake an alien invasion and the build-up to war will spur the economy into fixing itself quickly. Preparing for WWII got us out of the great depression, so why wouldn’t it work with aliens? It’s also part of the plot of Alan Moore’s “Watchmen”. If only all economic discussions could be explained using comic books.
