Ex-parrot

What do you do when a professor of economy at London School of Economics who is also the former chief economist of the EBRD and a former external member of the MPC writes this:

This financial system is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s expired and gone to meet its maker! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed it to the tax payer’s perch it’d be pushing up the daisies! Its metabolic processes are now ‘istory! It’s off the twig! It’s kicked the bucket, it’s shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-FINANCIAL SYSTEM!!

Do you laugh or cry? Do you call for the champagne or the pistol?
