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.
