I just bought one. I hope the low price isn’t for getting rid of the leftover stock of the older design. Still a good deal anyway, though.

Obama did by putting former Fed Chairman Paul Volker in his Admin. Volker is respected as a credible economist who beat inflation. Too bad he is destroying his reputation by associating with a socialist tax and spender like P. Obama!

Buiter http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/11/30/quotes-of-the-day-buiter-on-citi/comment-page-1/#comment-9406 Mon, 30 Nov 2009 22:52:20 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/11/30/quotes-of-the-day-buiter-on-citi/#comment-9406 I joined Citi for two reasons. First, because Citi is the one truly global bank. Second, because Citi is an institution that, following its challenges during the global financial upheaval of late 2008 – early 2009, changed course resolutely and radically to return to its core strengths: global commercial banking, financial infrastructure services and investment banking.The global scope of Citi’s activities and its presence in every systematically important asset market mesh very well with my long-standing interest in open economy macroeconomics and in the joint determination of economic activity, inflation and asset prices and rates of return.I am pleased, proud and honoured that this Citigroup has appointed me its Chief Economist.

But still, I’m surprised Citi would go with such a well-known “shoot first, ask questions later”-type economist. As a partially government-owned bank, I’d think Citi would want to play it safe for the time being.
