Quote of the Day:

"[Fed Chair] Greenspan, who
consciously perfected the art of saying nothing, but saying it with exquisite
obscurity, has also done a wonderful job of rendering the Fed’s actions
ineffectual, at least when they take the form of anything but making credit
cheaper.”
-Alan Abelson [9], Security and Securities, Barrons, February 7, 2005
