Slogans for hard times -- an economy-themed t-shirt roundup

Past generations have defined their difficult and historic times with artwork, photographs and songs. The Guernica serves as a reminder of the Spanish Civil War, one Photograph served as the face for the Great Depression and the Vietnam War gave birth to numerous songs. The current generation, my generation, has chosen to use t shirts to mark the defining moments of our lives. T shirts, though seemingly fleeting, bear witness to the Lewinsky Scandal, September 11th, the Iraq War, the Bush presidency and Obama's November 4th win. Given the iconic role that t shirts have taken over the past few years, it's no surprise that t shirts are now commemorating and commentating on the financial crisis.
