Default Ben Stein on the markets

Since this forum has taken an interest in the "approaching economic apocalypse," I offer further evidence. Keep in mind that before becoming an actor, Stein worked for both Reagan and Bush 1 on the Council of Economic Advisers.

I read his articles in Mens Health, some of them are pretty informative.

I missed the valedictorian thing. He has this "Everybody's Business" column in the Times every other Sunday - he's obviously a very smart and funny guy. He's an unapologetic Republican and capitalist, but he's been ruthless about going after corporate greed-heads and market-manipulators and our feckless president. I read everything of his that I see.

I like Ben but he turns me off a bit when I hear him talk about intelligent design.
