“We need more, Tree”… “Give us more, Tree”
What if our economy was a tree from which politicians could just take and take and take? When would they stop?

The Taking Tree parodies Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree” and follows these burning questions to their logical conclusion.
ONE of the biggest headaches for policymakers in many rich countries has been how to create jobs during a period of fiscal austerity and anaemic growth. The private sector has been slow to generate jobs, and government-spending cuts usually end up cutting jobs. And governments employ a lot of people: in our chart of the ten biggest global employers, below, seven are government-run. America’s defence department had 3.2m people on its payroll last year, equivalent to 1% of the country’s population. China, the world’s most populous nation and a big military spender, employs 2.3m people in its armed forces. And the number of people working for the National Health Service in England is equivalent to over 2.5% of the country’s population. The three private companies are Walmart, McDonald’s and Taiwan’s Hon Hai Precision Industry Company, a subsidiary of which is Foxconn, a secretive electronics manufacturer.

“No,” the father said. “We’d all die of a heart attack from the fat in that one. We’ll just wait.”
About an hour later, here comes this absolutely gorgeous woman.
The son said, “Now there’s nothing wrong with that one dad. Let’s eat her.”
“No,” said the father. “We’ll not eat her either.”
“Why not?” asked the son.
“Because, we’re going to take her back alive and eat your mother.”
