So are the days of our lives...

Nine hours of sand went into this latest comic for  The guy on the right should look familiar.  I can pretty much draw Ben Bernanke from memory these days.  The guy on the left is Haruhiko Kuroda, the governor of the bank of Japan.

This idea was generated by the folks at  I assume it has something to do with the central banks of both countries using bond buying strategies to buy more time for the markets to return to normal.  When Bernanke hinted last week that the FED would ease back on these measures, the markets freaked.  Of course, this might have had something to do with some of the choices the Chinese government has been making vis-a-vis their banks.

I'm fine with the way this one turned out.  Not my best work, but certainly not my worst.  I chose to depict sunset outside because I thought it was a good metaphor for the easing strategies winding down (also, when a bill expires it's called "sunsetting").

Happy Friday!
