The Magical Monetary World of Econoland

A new initiative by The Economist:

…The Economist Group is delighted to announce the development of a public-entertainment facility that combines the magic of a theme park with the excitement of macroeconomics.

Among the thrilling experiences Econoland will offer are: The currency high-roller: Float like a butterfly with the euro and drop like a stone with the pound!Chamber of horrors: Tremble at the wailing of distressed debt! Fiscal fantasyland: Watch the economy shrivel before your very eyes as you struggle to stop growth falling!

“Econoland will appeal to the kid in everyone”, said a spokesman for The Economist Group, “although children themselves will not be admitted”. The park will open on April 1st. [link]
