Very cool. I had seen you make a couple references to it - but I didn't know if you were a fan or not. I was raised on WCW, I fall in and out of it but I'm in it right now. I really like what WWE is doing lately with Ziggler and AJ, Ziggler belongs in the main event. You just watch WWE or do you do TNA, as well?
Any guesses on how many years this might take and chances of success? LOL... but I applaud the effort. Thanks for sending it. I had no idea.
Meanwhile there are people camped out on his home doorstep:
"Over the past week a new occupation has begun at a particularly special place: the sidewalk by Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein’s house.
Occupy Goldman Sachs grew organically after a Global Noise march ended at Blankfein’s stoop at 15 Central Park West. And what a natural location to occupy, considering how Goldman Sachs engaged in some of the worst financial fraud the world has ever seen in the lead up to the 2008 financial crisis."
I know that you're a big fan of Paul Krugman, so I thought you might get a kick out of this Krugman gem from 2002.
The basic point is that the recession of 2001 wasn't a typical postwar slump, brought on when an inflation-fighting Fed raises interest rates and easily ended by a snapback in housing and consumer spending when the Fed brings rates back down again. This was a prewar-style recession, a morning after brought on by irrational exuberance. To fight this recession the Fed needs more than a snapback; it needs soaring household spending to offset moribund business investment. And to do that, as Paul McCulley of Pimco put it, Alan Greenspan needs to create a housing bubble to replace the Nasdaq bubble.
