And should he be cast as the former Goldman Sachs CEO in a major motion picture?
Okay, it’s time to come clean: all this blogging makes us at Mediolana vulnerable in a whole bunch of ways, not least to the gargantuan array of vegetable-based snacks that can be consumed, electronically-speaking, on the fly. But while munching our way through a bag of exceptionally good Doritos (pictured) – a cheese ‘n’ corn feast of predictable brilliance supplied by the CEO of one of our favourite companies, Azam Marketing – we couldn’t help noticing that susceptibilities in the more deranged models of capitalist economic architecture have become unexpected poles of attraction.
Yes, Doritos and Pepsi Max – if there’s a better duet in high carb, nutritionally modest food, we haven’t heard it – are offering lucky consumers the chance to go to either Las Vegas or Iceland. Gambling – whether on slot machines or banking bubbles – is the new rock ‘n’ roll. And we’re smacking our lips at other potential competition prizes. Trips to the USA after a massive depreciation in the US dollar? Vacations in Greece during yet another round of bailouts and riots? The possibilities are endless!
