The Money Game

The Money Game by Scott Moore

Recently, I received a very interesting e-mail by Scott Moore, an artist from California. He sent me a picture of his latest painting called “The Money Game” which illustrates the current crisis and the bailouts and busts which took place. The image includes the key elements of the economic crisis in the United States. Just take a deeper look and you will, for example, recognize the cars representing the auto industry or you will see that the overall structure of the landscape is a chess field, which gives the painting its name.

If you have found yourself a victim of the money game and could use some help to get yourself out of it you could look into getting payday loans.

Also, please leave a comment to tell us what you think about the painting and how you see the current economic crisis!

    I like the art. I particularly like the almost evil look on the pigs face…classic. I’ve just had an idea, someone should put out a ‘recession’ board game.

    Well, in my opinion something very important is missing: The Fed!

    I wonder why I haven’ seen sth like this in the various news outlets I’m reading. Anyways, nice work, nothing too special, but still nice work…

    I love the surrealism. I do agree with the other commentor, the Fed is missing in the picture. At least it is not visible.

    Maybe this is an interpretation of the behind the scenes dealings the Fed is involved in, such as bailing out foreign banks without disclosure to the public. We had to have Wikileaks to find that out.

    Yes, it seems a lot of people feel like they want blood from politicians (especially the greeks and spanish) and obviously all the revolutions happening across the middle east, it feels we are living in a less humane world driven by greed, lucky arseholes that bought a property at the right time have been laughing all the way to the bank and these vultures sicken me by how obsessed with their precious houses they are and that prices must keep rising all the time, a bigg bubble will burst in the housing market very soon i feel, it would take another 3 – 8 years, but it is on the cards.

    The economic landscape has changed a great deal since China has become the world economic powerhouse, selling the rest of the world cheap shit products and it’s the little people that suffer. It is a igantic farce and a scandal that all this mess was created by evil greedy bankers and world leaders allowing whymsical derivative financial products to make the shit really hit the fan. And dow, we are all fucked (zombie workers getting more and more into debt) whislt fabulous fortunes are being created for the financial evil dooers getting richer. It is an abomination that the world financial market is in such a mess, do your research and you will find that some of these toxic financial instruments were so complex that many whizz kid financials didnt even understand them fully, all they were interested in doing was investing in a scam with atrractive returns that backfired catastrophically. And why should the average person in the street on low incomes struggling to keep their jobs pay for something that was not their fault? What a wonderful fair world we live in. The rule is always pretty much the same, the rich get richer and the poor just end up drowing in a cesspit of debt. Many thanks to the enlightened evil fuck wits for their marvelous work and getting rich at taxpayers money. The best part is the useless banks were too big to fail, no let’s carry on lining our pockets and screw everyone else. JUST TOO MANY SELFISH ASSHOLES WITH NO INTEREST IN HELPING THEIR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS OTHER THAN THEMSELVES. iT IS sick how much money these traders can make by gambling and hedging on all sorts of financial instruments, the whole system needs to change, but I think the world needs a huge economic disaster before anything major is done in restructuring the global financial market. Only thing i can suggest to the common person is invest in PHYSICAL silver, gold was great to invest in only 4 years ago, but is now out of reach for the common person, however, from extensive research everything points to investing in gold bullion silver as the best way to have a great LONG position on a commoditie that is set to soar in the coming years. Since this time last year the price of gold and silver have increased a great deal, but with the still very undervalued price of silver, it really seems like a great investment opportunity.
