"The Timeless Theme of Official Corruption" - Gogol's Plays

commentary by Roger Erickson

It's official? Nothing's changed? At least not much?  Only the details?

Does one of Gogol's plays remind you of the Keating-5?

Has anyone seen this one?

The Government Inspector (Nikolai Gogol’s satire on corrupt people worrying they're being investigated)

A modern retake must certainly feature the GORBS (Greenspan, Geithner, Orszak, Rubin, Bernanke, Summers).

Especially if given a looney-tunes veneer.
