• Hank Greenberg, who outfitted AIG right into a Rube Goldberg contraption with an undeserved triple-A ranking, and who ran it so tightly that he was once the one person who knew the place all of the our bodies have been buried.

• Stan O'Neal of Merrill Lynch, aloof and suspicious, who suffered from "Goldman envy" and drove a proud outdated enterprise into the floor by means of selling cronies and pushing out his smartest lieutenants.

• Lloyd Blankfein, who helped flip Goldman Sachs from a tradition that famously placed consumers first to at least one that made consumers secondary to its personal base line.

• Franklin Raines of Fannie Mae, who (like his predecessors) bullied regulators into submission and allow his company float clear of its unique, noble challenge.

• Alan Greenspan, the mythical maestro of the Federal Reserve, who missed the proof of a transforming into housing bubble and became a blind eye to the lending practices that eventually introduced down Wall Street-and inflicted huge, immense ache at the state.

200). Then, the increase in M occurs simultaneously with a fall in the rate of interest which, ultimately, leads to a new equilibrium, partly by induced changes in M z, and partly (via an increase in income) by induced changes in M 1. Keynes's view - that an increase in M and a fall in the market rate of interest would stimulate expenditure to raise the level of real income and liquidity preference - was radically different from established doctrine. The Quantity Theory gave no consideration to the level of real income.

The Keynesian comparative static approach allowed no appreciation of Hayek's concern with the disequilibrium nature of the cumulative process of capital investment and its consequences for business activity. Much is clarified (at little, if any, cost) by employing the modem terminology of investment appraisal with a detailed numerical illustration. For any given period (say of a year) entrepreneurs must decide upon the optimal amount of net investment; this is the amount which sets the marginal efficiency of investment (declining with the amount of net investment in each period) equal to the rate of interest.

DYNAMIC CONSIDERATIONS AND SUPPLY CONSTRAINTS Hayek emphasised the supply constraints arising during the dynamic path of adjustment be/ore a final equilibrium is reached. How is a fully employed labour force to be distributed between the different methods of production? Rising commodity prices create cumulative pressure against more capitalistic methods of production. Where investment in less roundabout methods is insufficient to arrest this trend, resource constraints may result in a failure to renew more durable machinery.
