COLUMBIA BUSINESS SCHOOL FOLLIES... "BEST FOUR MINUTES OF THE DAY"
HatTip to Lenny. My younger bro is a 2nd year at Columbia Business School, so he sent me a link to their follies show this year. Some people already picked up on it with the big one being The Wall Street Journal's MarketBeat:
Today's best four minutes of the day: an uproarious parody of the Police's "Every Breath You Take" by students at Columbia Business School, which purports to show the school's dean, Glenn Hubbard -- and, no, that is not Mr. Hubbard, the school confirms, but a look-alike student -- taking Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to task for monetary policy mistakes (in a fit of jealousy over not getting the position). It's hard to resist the charm of any attempt to poke at the Fed, especially one that includes the couplet "Hope your models break/bet that beard is fake." Hat tip to Barry Ritholtz, who linked to this in his blog earlier in the day. The real Mr. Hubbard was traveling and could not be reached for comment.
