mixed media on paper

The female Centaur balances a coin on the end of her finger, an exercise in balance. A lot of economies, are wondering how to balance the books, tighten the belts, but not so tight as to stifle growth, to make the right call. Some are printing more notes, more coins, it brings to mind the photo of a child building a toy house, in the Wiemar period with bank notes.
We all hope that cool heads, good decision making, and courage will see us out of this mire.
