Actually this is the mother of all mashups. Love it.

Like the butterfly effect, seemingly small events can snowball into larger consequences. The economy reminds me of this rhyme.

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

Question becomes what was the nail that started it all?
