Trickle-Down Economics

What would desperate people do without some kind souls looking to share the bailout bounty? From the Manhattan "men seeking women" section of Craigslist:
    I'm an investment banker downtown. And I'll be honest with you, I'm not much myself in the looks department. But what I do have is a nearby apartment I'm not using. And a bunch of cash and a couple of credit cards I'm not using either. Rather than go to . . ugh. . .work. . .why don't you use the apartment and cash and credit cards I'm not using? Now, I'm gonna be upfront. This generous offer isn't simply so you can have the privilege of living in my place, spending my money and watching my credit card balances grow. No, I would expect that in exchange for these privileges you will gladly, willingly and enthusiastically fulfill my deepest desires, especially of a sexual nature.

  • A Generous Sugar Daddy Type
    I'm 34, well educated, and work in the finance industry. I am looking for something "no strings attached", but perhaps mutually beneficial for the both of us. I am attracted to Asian and Caucasian women, but am very open minded in the type of girl I'd like to spoil. Most important to me is that you be between my age or younger, and have a very open minded/fun attitude. In terms of spoiling, I'd love to be generous with the right girl in whatever it is you might need help with, bills, spending money, etc.

    -Most generous stipend to be negotiated based upon personal chemistry and availability (I won't insult you by naming a figure. Once again, I ask that you not be a "professional")

  • Handsome Hedge Fund Manager Seeks Beautiful Kiki de Montparnasse Type
    I am a handsome hedge fund manager who is seeking a beautiful girl to spoil rotten. I don't like to play games or waste time pursuing someone who is not seeking a similar situation. So I find myself turning to Craigslist. So what am I looking for? A beautiful, intelligent young woman who wants to meet a very successful man who can spoil her with shopping trips, days at the best spas, and a very generous monthly allowance. You must be extremely good looking and very feminine for this to work. Does my idea of a decidedly decadent, metropolitan romance spark an interest?

Is there any allowance for a pension plan?

Gee, these adds make prostitution look pretty attractive. All a prostitute has to do is screw the guy and be on her way. At least she doesn't have to tolerate his ego day after day.

it's my experience that every single "Personals" ad I've ever read has depressing and pathetic and transparently soul-killingly needy

Ah, look at all the lonely people

My dear CR, these are nothing new. You must not look at Craigslist M4W often enough to know that these kinds of ads are a daily occurrence, long before the word "bailout" became part of our national consciousness.

If anything, most of these chumps are probably liars, aggrandizing themselves in the ad, hoping to get a hot gold digger and then stiff her (pun wasn't intended, but it is now) when the time comes to buy her those Manolo Blahniks.

Decades ago, I think during the "Greed Is Good" era, we already established what we are. As a nation.
Now we're just haggling over the price.

Character Counts.

Where's Dateline when you need them?

They treat everyone like a "2 cent whore", customers, co-workers, companies, people they meet.

Reminds me of the scene in, "Boiler Room".
Or that country album, white trash with money.

I like the idea of craigslist, but there is A LOT of garbage on it.

Very interesting way to redact economics issues, very easy to understand it easy to read too, and yeah, you right: the generous offer isn't simply so you can have the privilege of living in my place

This will not work as a matter of fact, that is what I believe.
