a wonkish good time

last night at our discussion crew spencer mentioned a link. i took a look and it was hysterical.
for twentysome years i was under the impression that a macroeconomic themed music video couldn't properly be described as funny, entertaining, touching, or even fantastic. Today I realized I was living in denial of the truth. Spencer's link awakened me to the:
Best Monetary Policy Themed Music Video EVER
A quick overview so it makes sense. Ben Bernanke was recently appointed to be the Chairman of the Board of Governors of the United States Federal Reserve Syestem which is generally called the Fed. Alan Greenspan preceded Bernanke. Glenn Hubbard, Dean of the Columbia Business School (CBS), was a finalist to replace Greenspan.

For all you yid watchers out there, Bernanke's middle name is Shalom. Hubbard, on the other hand, has Glenn as a middle name, his name is actually R. Glenn Hubbard. I am guessing the R doesn't stand Reuven.
