Hey guys, remember social mobility? Man, that used to be awesome. The last couple of recessions have been particularly ridiculous, prompting excuses based on the explanation that this is just a "new economy," which raises the question: what was the "old economy" like? Many of us are too young to have experienced its benefits as adults.
Fortunately, a new meme emerged last week to explain how the economy worked back when a good standard of living came easier for WASPy heterosexual males with American accents. Thanks, Old Economy Steven, you frikkin' bastard.
