JIM WASHINGTON: Tonight we have a representative of Ubersoft in our studio. She’s going to talk about Linux, Free Software, and how it’s responsible for the current recession.
ALICE: We don’t like to use the word “recession.”
JIM WASHINGTON: Why not?
ALICE: “Recession implies that there were legitimate market forces at play that caused the market to suffer. We prefer a phrase that more accurately describes what certain nefarious groups have done to subvert the market and weaken our economy.
JIM WASHINGTON: What phrase is that?
ALICE: “Brand dilution.”
