Holly Shit. She is a professor of one of the top-rated Universities. So much for the US educational system.

Fuck. The USA is doomed. We became a nation of perverted imbeciles.

 Scholes and Merton were at LTCM....  Scholes  takes it one more step into lunecy by not bounding his derivative pricing.  The list of Noble prize lunatics include Leon Cooper for using neural networks to take the risk out of FICO scores which cost the country a trillion in S&L.    Then the peace maker and Internet inventor.   I would say  in the economist pseudo science language  on the one hand these keynesians  are lunatics and in the other just jerk offs..  Oh yea I have a problem now that there is no inflation the down sized barf bag overflow stimulates more down sized paper towels clean ups..HOW CAN THE EMPLOYMENTS NUMBERS BE DEFENDED?  There were 926,000 people taken out of the denominator by the participation rate.....    Election rhetoric. by FED and manulipation by BLS....

reminded me of:
'the Bourbon line of French kings (who also ruled in Naples and Spain), of whom it was proverbially said,
"they learn nothing and forget nothing" '

Maybe we should always greet these people with an enthusiastic "Welcome to the unaccountable class!"

No that is not a win for government.  The plan is to fill in this gigantic hole with the peasants wealth.  Current wealth and future wealth .

I have been begging my whole tenure on ZH for WB7 to do a visual parody of the American Sitcom "Threes' Company" (originally from England's banking system "man/kenseyian of the house") With Sheila Bair as Janet. And a Christina Romer as Chrissy snow. Of course, our intrepid Bernank is Jack Tripper, with TurboTax Timmy in the role of Don Knots.

why this is relevant for people so old to remember the series is that when Ms. Thigh master did not get her way in contract negotiations, they wrote her part just like romer's in this instance. Out of the house (former czar status) but still calling shots from a pay phone (academia).


EDIT: I have also found that google wants me to understand a series called "two and a half men." Thank you google.

its frigtening, they really do beleive this shit and whats worse is that it is exactly the sort of thing they are all teaching kids in university. Her husband David Romer is another keynesian extremist teacher at US unis as is his brother Greg Mankiw. Greg spoke of the gains from free trade, noting that outsourcing of jobs by U.S. companies is "probably a plus for the economy in the long run."

I dont know whether it puts to rest the conspiracy theories though spitzer. These people are either unbeleivably retarded individuals or a group of incredibly good manipulators.
