The Real Larry Summers

From Felix, a constant critic of Summers, comes this gem.

Quote of the piece has nothing to do with economics:

MR. ISAACSON:  So was that scene in the social network true?

(Laughter.)

DR. SUMMERS:  I’ve heard it said that I can be arrogant.

(Laughter.)

DR. SUMMERS:  If that’s true, I surely was on that occasion.  One of the things you learn as a college president is that if an undergraduate is wearing a tie and jacket on Thursday afternoon at three o’clock, there are two possibilities.  One is that they’re looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they are an asshole.

Watch and read it all.
