Monetary Music

In tomorrow's ec 10 lecture, I will be discussing issues in monetary policy. As background, ec 10 students might enjoy this parody (alternate links here and here) prepared by students at Columbia Business School about their Dean, economist Glenn Hubbard. Glenn had been rumored to be on the list of candidates considered for the job as Fed chair.

By the way, that is not the real Glenn Hubbard in the video (as some bloggers mistakenly thought at first) but a student playing him. However, Glenn may have musical genes: His younger brother, Gregg Hubbard, is the keyboardist for the country-pop band Sawyer Brown.

I will leave it up to you to decide which brother has the cooler job.
