Fake Store Fronts in Belfast to Boost Economy?


WeAreChange goes to Belfast see for themselves the way Northern Ireland has decided to handle the economic hardships in their neighborhoods. Through various cities, the Northern Irish government has spent around £2 million on plastering up photos of fake storefronts where businesses once operates. These have been here for over a year but governments in multiple other cities have decided to do the same to put up a false sense of a thriving economy for the G8. This is another example of governments attempting to mask the problems of recession since the bank bailouts instead of actually doing something about it.

    Maybe we should start eating pictures of food, and painting trees on factory walls, and whatever else.

    This is acctually not that new, I’ve been making love to pictures of women for a long time now…

      I’m gonna start a fake business business. There seems to be quite a lot of money in it.

        Fake money of course.
        Wait! Can something be fake without being real?

          Good point. Some sort of meta-zen mastery may be required to create the first “authentic fake”.

  2. Fake storefronts have been bringing a lot of fake jobs into my area.

    Well, Da-da’s country (psst, it’s not really his) for one has been conjuring and fomenting fake wars for over 60 years.
