Henchperson Myrdinn passed along this link to a blog that discusses comics from the framework of economics. Perfect fit for Evil Inc, no?
In all seriousness, if my college Econ class woulda been taught like this, I mighta been a business major.

And, believe it or not, it’s pretty easy to follow.
Unfortunately, that’s where many of the best stories are, so let’s be happy that Joker never studied economics.
