Economic Recovery Plan - South Park Margaritaville (Season 13)

Synopsis: Kyle Broflovski, aka "the Jew", tries to persuade the confused and frightened people in South Park to continue spending because the economy is based on trust and "faith". Stan Marsh finds that the complex financial system is ultimately directed by a U.S. Treasury that responds to crises like a "chicken with its head cut off" and has literally no clue what toxic assets are worth. Ultimately, Kyle and the younger generation must open up the "Keynesian purse strings" and relieve the debts of the over-consuming public.

This episode is a classic filled with great satire and powerful metaphors.
