Perhaps the most memorable outcome of the 2010 movie "Inside Job" by Charles Ferguson, was the historic humiliation of former Fed governor and current Columbia University professor, Fred "Napoleon Dynamite" Mishkin. For those who are unaware why, we urge you to watch the following clip which explains it all.
Well, as a result of Inside Job's epic embarrassment of Mishkin, we were amused and delighted to see that a recent development which is now prominently featured on Mishkin's Columbia university portal site, is a new disclosure page named simply enough: "Disclousure of Outside Compensated Activities" (sic) and yes, it is misspelled.
So for all those curious who Fred Mishkin has received money from in the past 8 years, here is a partial list:
Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Lexington Partners; Tudor Investment, Brevan Howard, Goldman Sachs, UBS, Bank of Korea; BNP Paribas, Fidelity Investments, Deutsche Bank,, Freeman and Co., Bank America, National Bureau of Economic Research, FDIC, Interamerican Development Bank; 4 hedge funds, BTG Pactual, Gavea Investimentos; Reserve Bank of Australia, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Einaudi Institute, Bank of Italy; Swiss National Bank; Pension Real Estate Association; Goodwin Proctor, Penn State University, Villanova University, Shroeder’s Investment Management, Premiere, Inc, Muira Global, Bidvest, NRUCF, BTG Asset Management, Futures Industry Association, ACLI, Handelsbanken, National Business Travel Association, Urban Land Institute, Deloitte, CME Group; Barclays Capiital, Treasury Mangement Association, International Monetary Fund; Kairos Investments, Deloitte and Touche, Instituto para el Desarrollo Empreserial de lat Argentina, Handelsbanken, Danske Capital, WIPRO, University of Calgary, Pictet & Cie, Zurich Insurance Company, Central Bank of Chile, and many, many more.
