About

A whimsical video in which a late-night television interviewer attempts to get an unusually wordy guest (a labor relations expert of sorts) to explain the relationship between unemployment and inflation.

The language is repetitive to the point of becoming almost abstract in its rhythms – setting up an interplay between the ideas and the aural pleasures of the text.
