Let me get this on the table right now I am not an economist. In addition, I don’t read The Economist. If pressed, I probably couldn’t give you a good definition of the word economist.
But, I like movies. I know movies, and I know movies where there are guys looking for a big score (usually, they’re not economists either). And, outside some of the more ridiculous amounts of money sought (cough, Swordfish) – there has been a slight upward trend of hauls of monies in heist films.
You know what else has a general upward trend (or a drastic one, that real economists warn against)? The GDP – aka the Gross Domestic Product. Please refer again to the opening sentence before you read this: the GDP is a handy little way to say, "Look how valuable this country is."
So here’s a graph for your "economic" enjoyment. You can get what you will out of it, but remember this: so what if Danny Ocean and his crew got away with $150 million – that’s just a drop in the ocean compared with the numbers we’re talking here.
