Robert Rubin Makes a Mistake

Robert Rubin and Jacob Weisberg's In an Uncertain World has many delightful little passages. One of my favorites is:

p. 185: "That was all correct, but... I [had] mistakenly discussed [foreign exchange] intervention in an intellectually serious way."

Note the authors: Rubin and Weisberg. How often do you see that--the person who actually writes the prose getting a full coauthorship credit? Bob Rubin is a class act.

The book party for "In an Uncertain Future" was tonight. I met Rubin for the first time. I really liked his manner, this sense of ease and assurance. The contrast to the people running economic policy now is really extraordinary. Those were the days (even if they were only a few years ago).
