Sack the Bankers, hire Actors

I spend more and more of my time watching TV. My excuse is that acting has just gotten so much better over the last few decades that, at last, Chekhov's dream has been realized and there are no small parts in the Theater just giant assholes shitting all over the Global Economy.
My solution? Sack the Bankers, hire Actors. 'What's my motivation?' they will ask. 'Not fucking up our Pensions,' we reply.  But, and here's the problem, Acting has only got better because Scripts have gotten better. Scripts have gotten better only because writers have become more socially inclusive- depicting blacks lesbians vampires etc. Bankers have had the reverse problem. Increasingly, Economists are writing their scripts.
