Great Deformation Drinking Game

By -

My adoration of David Stockman’s book The Great Deformation was, I hope, made abundantly clear with my extensive review of the tome (and, judging from my Amazon Associates page, an astonishing number of folks bought the book, including one chap who bought thirteen copies!). One of the charms of the book is its colorful language. For no particular reason, I dreamed up a drinking game based on the book; and, given the future that the book predicts, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to be fully inebriated for the days ahead. Thus:

When you read…… Drink………
Balderdash One sip red wine
Bretton Woods Two sips of red wine
Crony capitalism Very small sip of white wine
It cannot be gainsaid Large gulp of white wine
K Street Very small sip of whiskey
In the fullness of time Large gulp of red wine
William McChesney Martin Finish glass of red wine. Refill.

In all seriousness, it is an awesome book, and I refuse to stop proselytizing to anyone willing to listen that they should buy it, read it, and live it. Drink responsibly.
