Greenspan was such an embarrassment. Now because he recanted during his show trial, we have to read rubbish like this. I mean, how disgusting is this: You haul an old man like Greenspan, who just wants to be liked in the DC social whirl, and insist he spit upon a copy of Adam Smith, and when he does, you crow about it in the New York Times. I hope spending trillions of dollars on government boondoggles does somehow pull us out of the current recession, even if it means we have to hear about what a genius Keynes was. I don't see how it will or can, but since apparently we're going to do it, I hope it works.
