French Fry Economy Indicator

The U.S. government relies to heavily on Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve for indicators on how the economy is growing or shrinking. The Grassy Knoll Institute introduces the Fry Meter Benchmark, a much simpler format to measure the health of the nations economy. The Fry Meter utilizes the large order of fries at the Times Square restaurant located at Geneva On The Lake, Ohio. The size of the portion so goes the size of the economy.

Please take notice of the photo titled 2006 Fries. The tray is piled high with thick crispy french fries signaling the economy is stable and robust.

Photo titled 2007 Fries still shows a large portion, but not piled as high forecasting a slight down turn in the economy.

Photo titled Fries 2008 is clearly a smaller portion than previous years indicating that the economy is on the verge of a recession.

Finally, the photo titled 2009 Fries is a mere shell of the previous fry orders suggesting the economy is in the clutches of a long recessionary period.

The government doesn’t need to spend millions of dollars to analyze data and forecasts of the upcoming soybean crop. Instead, they need to get down to Geneva and order up the large french fry and maybe a cheeseburger as well. It’ll do the economy good.

    President Obama needs to read this blog more often. The country would be righted by now.

  5. Bitzky said

    Hmm, that isn’t a bad indicator. It should be used in parallel with The Economist’s Big Mac Index!

    How can you trust french fries as an indicator of the economy. This site is a joke. A real joke.
