Uwe Reinhardt is brilliant!
I had the pleasure of studying under Uwe Reinhardt at Princeton. He was by far the best teacher. He gave such entertaining presentations, full of jokes and anecdotes, that he managed to make accounting fun – even at 9 am – an ungodly hour for a college student! I loved working with him so much that I became a teacher assistant for the class.
He recently gave a presentation at a conference for investors in health care. The first part of the presentation is by far the funniest and best description of the financial crisis I came across. Download and read the presentation now! Maybe it’s the geeky economist in me talking, but I found the presentation absolutely hilarious!
