donut economy
 n.— «Economists now refer to the US as having a “donut economy”- it is hollowed at the center, heavily reliant on cheap imports from China, excessive military spending and a corrupted stock market to drive it. The US mortgage scandal has been compared to a Ponzi scheme-funny money, chasing funny money that ultimately vaporizes.» —“World Issues: “M” is for Multilateralism; “D” is for Delusional” by Robert Billyard Canadian Democratic Movement Apr. 10, 2008.
