From Economica:

Using cliches from financial language, artist Alina Chau presents a fanciful depiction of the current economic climate in her piece, "Bear and Bull," created especially for Economica: Women and the Global Economy. The term "bear market" refers to a period in which the prices of securities fall rapidly, resulting in widespread pessimism among investors, while "bull market" represents a period where the market is expected to rise, creating optimism and confidence among investors. In "Bear and Bull," Chau depicts this oversimplified characterization of the financial market, and shows how the general public can get caught in the crossfire.  

From Economica:

During the current economic crisis, more families than ever will be struggling with unemployment and trying to make ends meet while hoping for a better future. My piece is meant to reflect the everyday life of normal people, who may not be directly affected by the larger conflicts in the world--such as war, terrorism, or political unrest--but are deeply affected by the economic crisis, which is also beyond their control. The family of mice is my take on the metaphor "poor as a church mouse," and the cheese on top of the car represents the limited assets that the family must share.
