I have found the cause of the credit bubble.
And it is Johnnie Walker.
Know this, Sirs and Madams, it pains me to even type these words, as I have been (and continue to be) quite the fan of the succulent syrup since my college days.
Know also, that I do not mean to imply (or do I?) that everyone on Wall Street has been drunk for the past 5 (+/-) years, although I'm sure some may inevitably claim such was the case.
Please, gents and ladies, if you haven't already seen it on TV yet, take a gander at this Johnnie Walker ad, (link fixed, thanks RT!) entitled "Keep Striding"
For those of you not paying attention to the text appearing over the powerful imagery, let me spell it out for you:
Enjoy Johnnie Walker responsibly or (Ed: some such nonsense)
Cheers, and happy weekend!
