10 Economics short jokes

Jokes and stand-up comedians on Economy and Finance

Here are 10 short jokes + some extra jokes about economics and economists, some of them made up by economists themselves. Have fun and remember what Oscar Wilde used to say: Life is too important to be taken seriously. So, without further ado, keep calm and let the fun begin!

‚ÄėI‚Äôm a walking economy, you know‚Äô
‚ÄėHow so?‚Äô
‚ÄėMy hairline is in recession, my stomach is always in inflation, and these two together bring me into a deep depression‚Äô

Inflation is when you pay fifteen dollars for the ten-dollar haircut you used to get for five dollars when you had hair. (Sam Ewing)

Did you know economists have predicted sixty out of the last five recessions?

‚ÄúYou know it’s said that an economist is a man who, when he finds something that works in practice, wonders if it works in theory.‚ÄĚ ‚Äď Walter Heller

Q: Why are Women more pessimistic about the economy than Men? A: Because men are in charge of the economy!

There were two economists who were shipwrecked on a desert island. They had no money but over the next three years, they made millions of dollars selling their hats to each other.

Did you hear of the economist who dove into his swimming pool and broke his neck? He forgot to seasonally adjust.

Why was astrology invented? So economics would seem like an accurate science.

How many economists does it take to change a light bulb? Seven, plus/minus ten.

Extra jokes

Economists do it with models

‚ÄúWe have 2 classes of forecasters: Those who don’t know . . . and those who don’t know they don’t know. ‚Äú – John Kenneth Galbraith.

What did the ruthless businessperson say to their employees?   If at first you don‚Äôt succeed, you‚Äôre fired!

Business is up and down at the moment; I sell yo-yos.

The banker fell overboard from a friend‚Äôs sailboat.  The friend grabbed a life preserver, held it up, not knowing if the banker could swim, and shouted, ‚ÄúCan you float alone?‚ÄĚ  ‚ÄúObviously,‚ÄĚ the banker replied, ‚Äúbut this is a heck of a time to talk business.‚ÄĚ

My boss asked me to put a joke on the first slide of the presentation…apparently a picture of my pay slip wasn’t what he was looking for.

When I was younger, I really wanted to be a banker…but I kept losing interest.

What‚Äôs the best way of making a small fortune in the stock market?   Starting off with a large fortune.

A physicist, a chemist and an economist are stranded on an island, with nothing to eat. A can of soup washes ashore. The physicist says, “Lets smash the can open with a rock.” The chemist says, “Let’s build a fire and heat the can first.” The economist says, “Lets assume that we have a can-opener…”

Job Application and Job Interview Humor


Cover letter: “I would be prepared to meet with you at your earliest
convenience to discuss what I can do to your company.”

That’s what we’re afraid of …


Resume: “It is my professional objective to obtain a position which
allows me to make use of my commuter skills.”

I think we can oblige.


Weaknesses: “Suffer from prickly heat in summer.”

Sounds uncomfortable.


Cover letter: “Enclosed is my resume for your viewing pleasure.”

We can hardly wait.


Cover letter: “You are privileged to receive my resume.”

We’ll try not to let it go to our heads.


Objective: “To mature in the field of human behavior.”

Good luck with that.


Experience: “10 years of experience in financial budgiting and transactions rigistering.”

But limited experience with the spell-check function.



Cover letter: “Please overlook my resume.”

If you insist.


Cover letter: “I am submitting the attached copy of my resume for your consumption.”



Translator gets 400 words to translate.
Client : How long will it take?
Translator : About a week.
Client : A whole week for just 400 words? God created the world in 6
Translator : Then just take a look at this world and afterwards take a
look at my translation.


Skills: “Grate communication skills.”

Yes, but can you talk and chop at the same time?


Experience: “Responsibilities included recruiting, screening,
interviewing and executing final candidates.”

Seems kind of harsh …


Cover letter: “Salary demanded – $65,000.”

Would you like that in small, unmarked bills?


Strengths: “Ability to meet deadlines while maintaining composer.”

Would that be Mozart or Beethoven?


Education: “B.A. in Loberal Arts.”

Did you minor in ear piercing?


Cover letter: “I’ve updated my resume so it’s more appalling to

We’re pretty shocked already …



Cover letter: “Seek challenges that test my mind and body, since the
two are usually inseparable.”

Glad to hear it.


Cover letter: “My intensity and focus are at inordinately high levels,
and my ability to complete projects on time is unspeakable.”

At these extremes, some things are best left unsaid.


Cover letter: “Experienced in all faucets of accounting.”

That should help with the flow of information.

Job interview

Had an interview for a job as a farrier once. I was asked if I had ever shoed a horse. I said no, but I’d told a donkey to go away once.


Went for an interview and was asked about my background. I showed him my phone, with a photo of my dog going for a walk.


They say dress for the job you want, not the one you have, but going to that interview dressed as Batman didn’t get be the job.

Told them at an interview that I always gave 100%. Didn’t get the job as an exam marker.


I was at a job interview today when the manager handed me his laptop and said
“I want you to try to sell this to me.”

So I put it under my arm, walked out of the building, and went home.

Eventually he called me and said “Bring my laptop back here right now!”

I said “$200 and it’s yours.”


I was asked at an interview what my biggest weakness was and said ‚Äúhonesty‚ÄĚ. The interviewer said ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt see that as a weakness‚ÄĚ, and I replied ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt care what you think‚Ä̂Ķ


How does a freelancer define ‚Äúweekend‚ÄĚ?

Two working days till Monday.


I was asked in an interview to describe myself in three words. I said ‚Äúnot very good at following instructions‚ÄĚ.


What kind of job are you looking for? I’m looking for a job where I am politely ignored and left to my own devices. With unlimited Internet access, doughnuts, and coffee.


What kind of job are you looking for? Inspecting mirrors is a job I could really see myself doing.


Are you willing to work extra hours? Sure, as long as they’re lunch hours.


I was asked in an interview if I could perform under pressure. I said yes, and I do a good version of Bohemian Rhapsody too.


Interviewer: What‚Äôs your biggest weakness? Me: I don‚Äôt know when to quit. Interviewer: You‚Äôre hired. Me: I quit.


After many years of trying to find steady work, I finally got a job as a historian until I realized there was no future in it.


I became a professional fisherman but discovered that I couldn’t live on my net income.


I worked at the bank as a teller for a while…until I started losing interest.

Traducciones literales desternillantes · Hilarious literal translations

El arte de las traducciones literales

Ling√ľistas, traductores, fil√≥logos… todos intentamos no re√≠rnos de estas bromas hechas a base de traducir literalmente al ingl√©s expresiones muy castizas, pero √Ālex, un amigo, me ha enviado estas fotos tan divertidas de unos carteles encontrados en un bar de Madrid. No recuerda el nombre del establecimiento, as√≠ que, si alguien lo conoce, que nos lo comunique en comentarios, por favor.

Huelga decir que dichos carteles se elaboraron con una intenci√≥n c√≥mica, pero por si las moscas (for if the flies just in case), he a√Īadido la traducci√≥n al ingl√©s correcta (es decir, tal como se dir√≠a en el idioma de Shakespeare). Aunque ¬°C√°gate, lorito! (Shit yourself little parrot! Holy shit!) S√≥lo hay una cuya traducci√≥n se me resiste: la √ļltima. A ver si alguien da con ella.

Vamos all√°:

¬°Mira t√ļ por donde!

chistes de idiomas

Una manera m√°s correcta de traducir esta expresi√≥n ser√≠a: It’s such a coincidence!

Va a ser la leche

Otras maneras¬†m√°s correctas de traducir esta expresi√≥n ser√≠an: (to) be the best! (to) be the greatest! (to) be really something (¬°Eres la leche! = You’re really something!)

La alegría de la huerta

Otra manera m√°s adecuada de traducir esta expresi√≥n tan t√≠pica ser√≠a…

to be the life and soul of the party

Estar a dos velas

literal translations

Una manera más correcta de traducir esta expresión sería: (to) be broke. También not have two pennies to rub together o (to) be skint

¡Ostras Pedrín!

La expresi√≥n tiene su origen en¬†un tebeo nacido a mediados del siglo XX que se hizo muy popular en Espa√Īa, llamado “Roberto Alc√°zar y Pedr√≠n”.
En dicho cómic el personaje de Roberto Alcázar solía dirigirse de esta manera al personaje de Pedrín. Con el tiempo, la frase se incorporó al habla coloquial habitual del país.

La traducción de ésta ya parece misión imposible. Si tenéis alguna sugerencia no dudéis en apuntarla en comentarios.

So I’ma gonn’ work work work every day
I got mouths I gotta feed,

So I’ma gonn’ make sure everybody eats

They looking like a mount’
All the little kids run around

Touching for a moon out
And my girl just don’t know how

Stumped my toe on the edge of the bed
Opened the fridge and the food all gone
Leaving everybody, crap them along
Hopped in the car and the car won’t start
It’s too damn hot but I still gotta walk
My honey old lady and of course will not
Praying that my card won’t get declined

Letra en espa√Īol de¬†LunchMoney Lewis – Bills


Tengo facturas tengo que pagar
Por eso trabajo, trabajo, trabajo cada día
Tengo bocas que alimentar
Y me aseguro  que todo el mundo come
¬°Tengo facturas!
Todas esas facturas apiladas en mi escritorio
Parecen una monta√Īa

Los peques corren a su alrededor
Puedo oír sus estómagos rugir
Aullar a la luna llena.
Y mi chica no sabe como
Dice que me va a dejar si no traigo a casa 50$
¬Ņ50$? Oh Dios, oh Dios, Oh Dios

Oh tío, oh tío, oh tío.
Oh Dios, oh tío, oh Dios, oh tío

Tengo facturas tengo que pagar
Por eso trabajo, trabajo, trabajo cada día
Tengo bocas que alimentar
Y me aseguro  que todo el mundo come
Tengo facturas
Me despierto y golpeo mi cabeza
Me doy con el dedo del píe en la pata de la cama

Abro la nevera y la comida se esfumó
Todo el mundo se las pira, a la mierda
Monto en el coche y no arranca
Hace demasiado calor y encima tengo que caminar
Una vieja espera en la cola
Rezando porque no hayan cancelado mi tarjeta

Oh Dios, oh Dios, Oh Dios
Oh tío, oh tío, oh tío.
Oh Dios, oh tío, oh Dios, oh tío

Tengo facturas tengo que pagar
Por eso trabajo, trabajo, trabajo cada día
Tengo bocas que alimentar
Y me aseguro  que todo el mundo come
Tengo facturas
Y mis zapatos, mis zapatos
Digo mis zapatos
No tienen suela

Tengo facturas tengo que pagar

Por eso trabajo, trabajo, trabajo cada día
Tengo boca tengo que comer
Y me aseguro  que todo el mundo come
Tengo facturas
Tengo facturas tengo que pagar
Por eso trabajo, trabajo, trabajo cada día
Tengo boca tengo que comer
Y me aseguro  que todo el mundo come
Tengo facturas

Je peux entendre leur estomac gronder
Tellement de factures qu’avec elles je peux toucher la lune
Et ma fille ne sais juste pas comment
Elle dit qu’elle va me laisser si je ne rentre pas √† la maison avec 50 dollars

Humor para economistas y contables

5 chistes sobre economistas y contables

Alguien dijo que re√≠rse de uno mismo es un claro indicio¬†de inteligencia, que nos hace m√°s tolerantes, agradables a los dem√°s y m√°s felices. No s√© si ser√° cierto. De hecho, el personaje que pronunci√≥ estas palabras no era ning√ļn encanto¬†y llevaba alguna copa de m√°s (disculpa, Nohay, pero es la verdad y alguien ten√≠a que decirlo)… Entre sorbo y sorbo evocaba su viaje a Nueva York y la gente variopinta que hab√≠a conocido¬†en el distrito financiero de Wall Street. Durante su periplo¬†extrajo no¬†pocas conclusiones en forma de chistes, que le sirvieron para publicar el libro Teo-r√≠a de los Mercados. Aqu√≠ pod√©is ver un retrato robot de Nohay, un tipo majete en el fondo, aunque deber√≠a ducharse de vez en cuando…

Pues bien, el pintoresco y harapiento personaje me ha dado permiso para publicar cinco de los chistes que ha recopilado en su libro para la secci√≥n de humor de mi blog. S√© que muchos de mis lectores son economistas, contables y financieros. Aprovecho la ocasi√≥n para saludaros y desearos¬†a tod@s un feliz a√Īo 2016 lleno de felicidad… ¬°y risas!


Un economista es alguien que cree que nueve mujeres pueden producir un hijo en un mes.


Los estudios econ√≥micos normalmente sirven para darse cuenta que el mejor momento para haber hecho algo fue el a√Īo pasado.


¬ŅQu√© es un contable?

Alguien que le resuelve un problema que usted no sabía que tenía, en una forma que usted no entiende.


¬ŅQu√© es un auditor?

Crítica de libros: Teo-Ría de los mercados

Humor para economistas, financieros y contables

He aqu√≠ un libro de humor original y diferente: Teo-R√≠a de los mercados, humor para economistas, financieros y contables. La verdad es que el humor raras veces se asocia con las finanzas o la econom√≠a, pero con los tiempos que corren y la que est√° cayendo, resulta incluso terap√©utico echarse unas risas a costa de los mercados. Al fin y al cabo, como dec√≠a Oscar Wilde, “la vida es demasiado importante como para tom√°srsela en serio”. El libro, adem√°s, ‚ÄĒque ya os digo que no pasar√° a los anales de la literatura universal‚ÄĒ¬† da muchas ideas para amenizar conferencias o clases de econom√≠a y finanzas con chistes y ocurrencias. La verdad es que me he echado unas buenas risas, que es de lo que se trata.

El libro -en formato ebook- empieza con un rifirrafe que tiene lugar en un pub de Wall Street, en el que se entabla un duelo dialéctico a base de chistes y ocurrencias jocosas entre el camarero (de izquierdas y que ha participado en el movimiento Occupy Wall Street) y un cliente (ejecutivo de Wall Street que ha perdido una fortuna porque su broker ha invertido su dinero en derivados basura). Enseguida se les une otro personaje de izquierdas y otro liberal. La comedia está servida. Después siguen un montón de chistes (algunos de ellos bastante inteligentes y otros graciosos). El libro se cierra con un estudio económico-cómico sobre las relaciones de pareja.

El libro sin duda cumple con su objetivo: hacerte reír y pasar un buen rato. La verdad es que lo he disfrutado y he repasado varios de sus chistes.

Descripción del libro

No se confunda, este libro trata de economía, pero no es uno de esos manuales sobre cómo hacerse rico. De hecho, le garantizamos que si se hace rico leyendo este libro, ¡le devolvemos el dinero! Lo que obtendrá de estas páginas es algo mejor que eso (o eso nos gustaría creer): ni más ni menos que carcajadas.

A guisa de Obligaci√≥n de Deuda Garantizada (o CDO), esta obra titulariza un fondo com√ļn de divertidas frases, chistes y situaciones desternillantes diversificadas en secciones por tramos, respaldadas a su vez por los flujos de risas del fondo com√ļn de hilarantes desprop√≥sitos. Y, lo mejor de todo: no se va a volatilizar si se hunde Wall Street… Nuestra agencia de rating le da una triple A.

Todo con el loable objetivo de reírnos de la economía y sus derivados y de la gente que se dedica a ella en cuerpo, alma y billetera.

En Teo-Ría de los mercados encontrará innumerables chistes y frases ingeniosas sobre todos estos temas: economistas, asesores financieros, dinero, teoría económica, banqueros e incluso bombillas. Y, además, una breve y cómica obra teatral que sirve de prólogo, y una descacharrante parodia de los estudios económicos, dedicada a analizar las relaciones de pareja.

Keynes y Hayek se pondrían de acuerdo en una cosa: ¡es para troncharse!

(A small board meeting. An accountant stands up and reads…)

Accountant (Michael Palin): Lady Chairman, sir, shareholders, ladies and gentlemen. I have great pleasure in announcing that owing to a cutback on surplus expenditure of twelve million Canadian dollars, plus a refund of seven and a half million Deutschmarks from the Swiss branch, and in addition adding the debenture preference stock of the three and three quarter million to the directors’ reserve currency account of seven and a half million, plus an upward expenditure margin of eleven and a half thousand lira, due to a rise in capital investment of ten million pounds, this firm last year made a complete profit of a shilling.

Chairman (Graham Chapman): A shilling Wilkins?

Accountant: Er, roughly, yes sir.

Chairman: Wilkins, I am the Chairman of a multi-million pound corporation and you are a very new chartered accountant. Isn’t it possible there may have been some mistake?

Accountant: Well that’s very kind of you sir, but I don’t think I’m ready to be Chairman yet.

Board Member (John Cleese): Wilkins, Wilkins. This shilling, is it net or gross?

Accountant: It’s British sir.

Chairman: Yes, has tax been paid on it?

Accountant: Yes, this is after tax. Owing to the rigorous bite of the income tax five pence of a further sixpence was swallowed up in tax.

Board Member: Five pence of a further sixpence?

Accountant: (eagerly) Yes sir.

Chairman: Five pence of a further sixpence?

Accountant: That’s right sir.

Chairman: Then where is the other penny?

Accountant: Er…

Board Member: That makes you a penny short Wilkins. Where is it?

Accountant: Erm…

Chairman: Wilkins?

Accountant: (in tears) I embezzled it sir.

Chairman: What all of it?

Accountant: Yes all of it.

Board Member: You naughty person.

Accountant: It’s my first. Please be gentle with me.

Chairman: I’m afraid it’s my unpleasant duty to inform you that you’re fired.

Accountant: Oh please, please.

Chairman: No, out!

Accountant: (crying) Oh… (he leaves)

Chairman: Yes, there’s no place for sentiment in big business.

(He goes over to a wall plaque ‘There is no place for sentiment in Big Business’. He turns it over. On the back it says ‘He’s right you know’.)

Bishop (Terry Jones): (to Chairman) Oh you’re no fun anymore.

(Camel Spotting man comes running in shouting.)

Spotter (Eric Idle): I heard that. Who said that?

All: (pointing at the bishop) He did! He did!

Bishop: No I didn’t.

All: Ooh!

Spotter: Right!

(Shot of the bishop bound and gagged and tied across a railway line.)

Voice Over (Eric Idle): Here is the address to complain to…

(Caption on screen : ‘MR ALBERT SPIM, I,OOO,OO8 LONDON ROAD, OXFORD’ But he reads:)

Voice Over: The Royal Frog Trampling Institute, 16 Rayners Lane, London, W.C. Fields. I’ll just repeat that…


Voice Over: Tristram and Isolde Phillips, 7.30 Covent Garden Saturday, near Sunday, and afterwards at the Inigo Jones Fish Emporium.

(Cut to Jewish figure.)

Jewish Figure (Michael Palin): And they want to put the licence fee up?
