NEW YORK, NY—In a late-night show interview Wednesday, Senator Bernie Sanders politely asked the nation to please stop mailing him books on basic economics, revealing that he’s been “absolutely flooded” with works on the most rudimentary concepts of supply and demand.

Sanders made the request after receiving yet another daily shipment of books from well-meaning Americans who simply assumed that he has never read a book on the subject in his life.

“I’ve got 1,200 copies of Human Action, 1,500 copies of Basic Economics, and 4,700 copies of Economics in One Lesson,” the angered senator said. “I’m drowning here.” Sanders also showed the late-night host a small mountain of children’s books on the subject of economics from the easy-to-read Tuttle Twins series, sent to him from Americans who assumed he had somehow missed classroom discussions on the value of a dollar and supply and demand while in elementary school.

Sanders further confirmed he still hasn’t read a single one of the books, stating that they look like they’re “full of harsh facts” and that he prefers a more emotion-based approach to economics. He added that he’s “a little peeved” that our nation has so many choices for books on basic economics on the market. “Do we really need that many?”

At publishing time, Sanders had arrived to one of his other houses and began screaming at the sky in anger upon discovering fifty-eight more books on basic economics had been mailed there.

Someone mail him a book about great MAGA trade wars are.
The consequences may fall hard on Red States.
Make them pay China!

Is the Babylon Bee another The Onion?

They cite an unnamed late night show for the "full of harsh facts" quote.

I call this article out as BS until original sources are cited.

Wouldn't want facts and reason to stand in the way of a Beautiful Theory.

Yes, except that the Babylon Bee is actually funny.

Bernie does, however, appreciate books on FreeShitONomics and how it serves the genius of central planning.

And he still doesn't get it. Socialism does not work. What a moron.

Yes, it’s satirical. However they tend to cut close to the bone, giving the articles a sense of “truthiness” that often confuses the uninitiated.

Sanders has got it all wrong.

First, we need to automate ALL white collar jobs so that there's an unemployment rate among white collar workers approaching ~65%.

Once that happens, then Sanders can come in and tout socialism.

So let's start the process, more machine learning, more AI, and then ... let the firings begin. And then, with each economic recovery cycle, increase the firing to hiring ratios.

All humor has an element of truth in it.
