If you don’t know him already, let me introduce you to the Oozlum Bird, probably the most useful metaphor possible for describing the world’s economic/political situation today.
“The oozlum bird, also spelt ouzelum, is a legendary creature found in Australian and British folk tales and legends. Some versions have it that, when startled, the bird will take off and fly around in ever-decreasing circles until it manages to fly up itself, disappearing completely, which adds to its rarity.
(…) A variant of the oozlum, possibly a mutation, is the weejy weejy bird, which has only one wing which causes it to fly in tighter, faster, smaller circles, until it disappears up its own fundament. — Wikipedia”
Where are we now in in the Oozlum’s flight plan?
