Damn, that's the funniest video I've seen in a long time, but maybe only because I'm a banker : )

LOL! - pretty good production values for a dismal scientist.

Too bad 95% of the American public wouldn't have the slightest clue about the meaning of the lyrics...

Check this out (scary stuff!). If this fraud is occurring on a large scale, the collapse will dwarf the manufactured housing debacle of the late 90's. In other words, get ready for another great depression:

Looks like Dyan Harmell has some competition for the housing bubble poster child. Florida has the death penalty, right???

BTW Cool video Keith. LOL

fantastic video and I laugh every time.

But. At first I thought, "wow, students at CBS actually understand the fraud that is the Fed?"

Then I realized the true source for the parody: an economist from CBS was beat out by Bernanke for the Fed chairmanship.

It's still a great parody, but I'm disappointed the students are still soaking up the propaganda and believe the Fed is a necessary and "good" institution.

That was f'cking hilarious...please keep those coming.

The pics are great, as we all agree but the videos are a great add in.

I liked it.

I couldn't tell what he was mouthing near the end. "You're in deep shit"? "You little shit?"

He shows the cover of the economics text book and says "It's bullshit".

"Message in a Bottle" has potential as a spoof remix on our current real estate bubble situation.. Perhaps the message in a bottle could be tied in with people on the blog trying to get the S.O.S. out to thier friends, family, and community about the problem they are seeing with what is going on with real estate.

LOL, I don't know for sure, but I thought he said "your policy stinks".

Thanks for the explaination. For the life of me I didnt know why they were referring to CBS. Now it makes sense.

CBS is Columbia Business School in New York. One of the students impersonated Dean Glenn Hubbard of CBS. Hubbard was a candidate for the job that Bernanke got and the CBS students are ribbing him.
