Who Says Economists Have No Sense Humor?

Columbia Business School (CBS) students put together a video for their annual "Follies Cup" parodying the dean of the Columbia Business School, R. Glenn Hubbard. I am guessing that name won't be instantly recognizable to everyone so let me give you the background.

 

Before becoming Dean at Columbia, Reynolds was the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors in the Bush White House. It was widely rumored that he was going to replace Alan Greenspan as Chairman of the Federal Reserve. Instead, the job went to his friend, Ben Bernanke.

 

So with that as background, have a look at this video, starring Hubbard himself. Our musically literate readers will quickly recognize the spoof on the music video from The Police's Every Breath You Take.

 

 

You can also download the mp3 from Columbia's web site. Too funny!

 

TIP OF THE HAT:

 

Thanks to Barry Barnitz, author of the Financial Page blog, for emailing me the link to the video.
