Snooki Discusses the Economy

Snooki in NYC on August 11. The glasses make her look smart!

Watch out, Alan Greenspan! Who could have guessed that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is an armchair economist? Or, for that matter, a hobbyist Nostradamus?

When the Wall Street Journal asked Snooki for her take on the current economic climate, she provided this extrapolative “money quote” (haha!):

The economy is really scary because 2012 is coming. I feel like the first thing that’s going to happen… is a blackout and then everyone freaks out and the world goes crazy. So hopefully, Obama will take care [of the economy] before 2012.


But never mind the end of the world: Snooki adds that she has remained vigilantly frugal with her Jersey Shore earnings in anticipation of her fame’s eventual conclusion. “I bought me and my mom a car but that’s about it. I haven’t really spent on anything yet,” she said. “I’m saving up it up for when this is all over, with Jersey Shore and the spin-off, I have enough money to just take care of my family.”
