Look who's blogging: Alan Greenspan

Tuesday, September 04, 2007 | 07:05 AM


Yes, Alan Greenspan is blogging.

What is easy Al saying?

"There was also a personal story to tell. I’d known every president from Richard Nixon to Reagan, Ford, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. And what about all those other assorted characters from my childhood in New York, my years as a jazz musician, my complete career switch to economics – and my friendship with Ayn Rand? I wanted to make the leap from writing economic analysis to writing in the first person about what I’d experienced. And after years of talking “Fedspeak” in carefully calibrated congressional testimony – I could finally use my own voice!" . . .

My term as Federal Reserve Chairman ended at midnight, January 31, 2006. The following morning, I started to write. You would think after all those years at the Fed and my earlier decades as an economist that I would have learned about as much as I could. But halfway through the book I realized that the story was leading me in surprising directions. I needed to refocus much of what I had written in my original drafts."

I wonder who will be ghosting the blogposts in the future.

The only thing preventing me from declaring this form of written expression has officially jumped the shark is that it is an "Amazon blog." That means it is not a true blog, but more of a book promotional stunt. (The Age of Turbulence comes out September 18th).

If it were a real blog, he would have either confirmed or dispelled the rumors about him and Ayn Rand . . .

If it were a real blog, we would know know what type of a lay Ayn Rand was . . .
