Gertler: The Interview

Whether it is Jeremy Paxman, Tim Sebastian, Lise Doucette or Owen Bennett-Jones, the Beeb has evolved an interview-style unparalleled in the english-speaking world for its confrontational directness. 

The Interview, while one of the BBC's least-aggressive forums still provides sufficient "punch" to make it a worthwhile weekly essential. This past Saturday saw NYU Economist and Bernanke academic sidekick Mark Gertler under the gun of award-winning Owen Benett-Jones, and the result is worth listening to for all interested in the evolution of the current de-leveraging, revulsion and soon-to-deepen recession. While perhaps a touch too sanguine in comparison to Nouriel Roubini's, he does provide valuable perspective to temper the hyperbole from the media whose use of increasingly-heated and inflated adjectives to depict even ordinary market phenomena should be troubling to those trying to maintain objectivity on affairs.

David Pearson said...

The arrogance of Gertler is breathtaking. He argues Bernanke is uniquely qualified to deal with the crisis. Gee, I would have thought a small group of lesser mortals would be better qualified: namely, those that actually had a clue about the risks of 1% policy rates!

Gertler repeatedly implies it was impossible to predict the crisis. He dismisses Roubini as a serial Cassandra. "Nobody saw it coming," is his mantra.

Gee, I did. You did. That's two. What he really means is no respectable academic economist saw it coming. Which just tells you a lot about respectable academic economists.

Finally, he argues that, unlike in Japan, this is a liquidity problem for the vast majority of "healthy" banks. He still doesn't get it.
