Debts Real and Percieved

Simultaneously one of most insightful and hilarious things I've heard in a long time. In her 2008 Massey Lecture, Margaret Atwood explores the nature of debt through the modern-day tale of "Scrooge Nouveau". Proving that with a little imagination, it's possible to derive inspiration and humor from something as depressing as the economic realities of our times. This is why we need writers.

You can listen the 2008 Massey Lecture podcast "Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth" here, courtesy of public broadcaster TV Ontario. If you enjoy this sort if thing it's also worth poking around the TVO website, and subscribing to the Big Ideas podcast in particular. They usually have great stuff.
