Tax iVoidance

Said Cook, to the Senate's seniority:
"Though gadgets remain our priority,
While profiting scads
From iPhones and -Pads,  
We skirt every taxing authority."

Doves & Hawks Together

Thoughts diverge in the FOMC
On how long to hold on to QE,
But in case of deflation,
Without hesitation,
They'll ease up unanimously.

S&P vs GDP

An analyst pointed out that -
At the risk of provoking a spat - 
There's a gap in demand
Between equities and
The economy, which is still flat.

A Misbegotten View

Some conservatives want to find meaning
In professed homosexual leaning,
Which some think explains
The penchant of Keynes
For cyclical, state intervening.

We know the economist said
In the long run, that we are all dead, 
But the meaning was not
That he hadn't begot,
Or who he preferred in his bed.

Don't Jump to Conclusions

Though economists often expect
Their proposals be put in effect,
It's best if one will
Just hold off until
The model's been triply checked.

Bear Warning

Said one of those skeptical guys,
As the market was hitting new highs:
"The bulls may suppose
The economy grows,
But I doubt that the latter complies."

Market Correlation

Some analysts set about crunchin'
A proven statistical function
For why stocks and debt,
Which used to offset,
More recently move in conjunction.

At the end of it all they succeeded,
Having crunched all the data they needed,
Finding no other fact
So truthfully tracked
As expected expanse of QE did.
