Now we’re all underwater.

The year 2009 was chock full of economic events that you probably didn’t care for. Right now, on NBC’s New Year’s broadcast, Carson Daly is telling me that there’s reason for optimism for 2010, with the stock market turning around and all. I don’t know about you, but I’m not one for getting stock advice from Carson Daly. (Coming soon: Total Request Live: Bailout Edition! Let’s vote for the companies that live and die!)

But in all seriousness, you’ve probably had a hell of a time trying to understand why a bunch of homes going down in value could throw our entire financial system into the briar patch. And unfortunately, the feds have proven to be a lot like Br’er Bear, bumbling around to find the next master plan or contraption that can get us out of this mess. It’s hard to divine how the numerous and drastic changes taking place all around you are helping or hurting your wealth. Pop Economics is your navigator.

Oh yeah, and we’ve got some pretty cool art too. All of this stuff, unless noted otherwise, was created for Pop Economics. You’ll see lots of images inspired by pop artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, like the one above, which was inspired by this. The gallery will grow as the rest of the site grows, and if you’re interested, you can purchase merchandise with your favorite images on them.

So I hope you like what you see and come back soon. We’ll get things rolling on Monday with a post on the death tax and where it’s going in 2010.

Oh, and you can call me Pop.
