Alan Greenspan Shows Results That Speak for Themselves

William Tell’s precision archery and noble fighting spirit served him well in his efforts to fend off the Austrians and to help him found the Swiss Confederacy that would give birth to the nation of Switzerland.

Alan Greenspan’s interest rate targeting… not quite so accurate.

Finally, the facts are seeping their way into the minds of a broader audience. A recent poll shows 39 percent of CNBC readers blame Greenspan for the nation’s economic breakdown, 39 percent partly blame him, and only 22 percent are willing to let him off the hook. It’ll be interesting to see where his speaking circuit tour goes from here.
