:-) He is a favorite. Would that he had been in charge of the Fed for the past 18 or so years instead of Alan Greenspan.
Alan Greenspan, who hiked up interest rates three hundred basis points in 2000. Yeah, that's brilliant.
Then after 9/11, he realized that he had to start lowering interest rates to get the economy going. And he raised it by how much? You guessed it. Three hundred basis points.
And who would throw things at the television set if anyone dared to say anything about the Fed that he didn't like.
Sort of off topic, but I saw Andrea Mitchell yesterday, and then later saw Greenspan when the Bernanke appointment was announced and I realized the truth again of how some couples come to resemble each other. I wonder how Andrea feels about that?
