I can't afford to do anything because of the econopocalypse.
A place in time when all economic structures cease to function, according to the 502nd law of thermoeconomics:
All economic systems tend towards ever greater accumulation of increasingly insubstantial pseudo-scientific jargon; a stake of play that will ultimately result in the violent collapse and subsequent explosion of the econoverse in a molten halo of flaming bullshit.
Adam Smith ... Francis Fukuyama ... Econopocalypse.
A slang word for the financial meltdown caused by the subprime mortgage crisis.
My 401k suffered because of the Econopocalypse.
