From the creator of, the hysterical, award-winning Web site that "unite(s) The Onion and the Wall Street Journal in a marriage of pure lunacy" (Fast Company) comes a sizzling spoof of the breathless business journalism America has grown to distrust.
Through his hugely popular Web site Andrew Marlatt has hilariously skewered AmericaÂs marketing moguls, double-talking executives, and the sharky venture capitalists who seemed so omnipotent in the 1990s and so out-to-lunch in the 2000s. Now, Economy of Errors showcases MarlattÂs on-the-mark parodies of nine years of corporate kookiness and the business journalists who put their spin on it. His collection contains laugh-out-loud funny editorials, news shorts, mock Q & As, and features such as:

ÂAT&T Cuts Workforce by 120 Percent
ÂFrench Strike for Greater Productivity
ÂFriends Recall Gist of Cliffs Notes Founder
ÂE-toys Meets Expectations: None
ÂMan Continually Logs On/Off
ÂFed Drops Rates, Acid, at Policy Rave
