The Economist Fantasy Theme Park

To mark the beginning of the new financial year, the "Economist" claimed to be opening a Theme Park where the general public can be treated to visions of Macroeconomics. It will be a fiscal fantasy land where people can revel in the joys of Malthus and Mises etc.
It is a little late, however, because we already have one. It is called The Treasury which for some time has been teaching us how Enronomics can save the world. The problem is that this particular fantasy island is becoming increasing expensive to gain admission to, and worse still, once in, it is impossible to get out.
