The Economy is So Bad – Even Dilbert Got Fired

Dilbert_data_security.jpg
Kai Ryssdal of APM’s Market Place interviewed Dilbert creator Scott Adams for their new series “Taking Stock”.

Adams is a typical comic book artist. Kind of funny. Kind of weird:

ADAMS: Well, the great thing is that in this kind of environment, almost everybody you deal with is trying to screw you. And so that makes great comic fodder. So, everybody’s kind of a little bit dishonest. Maybe not criminally so. But can you really tell if your cellphone service is better than another cellphone service? Or can you tell if you invest in a hedge fund that they’re going to invest in anything versus just keeping the money and spending it on fancy clothes?

RYSSDAL: Do you really believe everybody’s trying to screw you out there?

ADAMS: Well, I like to think everybody is, ’cause then I’ll be ready, you know, just in case. But, you know, it’s good to be vigilant.

You can listen to the whole thing here.
