Stupid in 3 languages

Can I get some stimulus for aggregate demand?

A what?

A large stimulus.

Do you mean a large austerity?

No, I mean a large stimulus.

Austerity is large.

No, the lack of demand is large. Stimulus is stimulus. In fact, the recession is large and austerity means in Latin harshness, strictness and asceticism. It is only in German “Sparsamkeit”. Congratulations, you are stupid in three languages.

Austerity is a large stimulus.

Really? Says who? IMF? BIS? ECB? Do you accept euro or is it all bitcons now?

PS: The dialog is very similar to a scene from the wonderful movie “Role Models” (2008)
