My Interview with Yogi Berra of the Federal Reserve Bank.



November 06, 2009 – Comments (7)

This morning I had the pleasure of sitting face to face with world famous New York Yankee and newest addition the Federal Reserve Bank’s talent pool, Mr. Yogi Berra.  


IsMyMotor: Mr. Berra, I appreciate you taking the time to sit with me to discuss a number of topics that have been on the minds of literally dozens of Motley Fool readers.

Berra: You should always go to other people's funerals, otherwise, they won't come to yours.  

IsMyMotor: I’m sorry, what is that supposed to mean?

Berra: Take it with a grin of salt.   

IsMyMotor: Mr. Berra, what are your thoughts on the risk of rampant inflation?

Berra: A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore.   

IsMyMotor: Ron Paul and Barney Frank want to audit the Federal Reserve Bank. What are your thoughts?

Berra: I wish I had an answer to that because I'm tired of answering that question.   

IsMyMotor: Are you afraid of answering the question about a potential audit of the Federal Reserve Bank?

Berra: If you ask me anything I don't know, I'm not going to answer.   

IsMyMotor: Are you concerned that churning out cash is going to destabilize the dollar and lead to a weaker economy?

Berra: You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.   

IsMyMotor: What does the last question have to do with pizza?

Berra: I never said most of the things I said.   

IsMyMotor: When will the Federal Reserve Bank cease printing money like they are issuing it to Hasbro?

Berra: It ain't over till it's over.   

IsMyMotor: As a high ranking official of the Federal Reserve Bank, you must admit the institution is capable of more harm than good. Give us your thoughts on that.

Berra: If the world was perfect, it wouldn't be.   

IsMyMotor: You appear to be in some discomfort. Is your starched collar bothering you? Would you like to have the thermostat lowered?

Berra: It ain't the heat, it's the humility.   

IsMyMotor: What are your thoughts about the use of Keynesian economic theory by the current administration to structure their stimulus package?

Berra: In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.   

IsMyMotor: So far you answer is the most in depth of any I have yet to hear on the subject.

Berra: We have great depth.   

IsMyMotor: Thank you, Mr. Berra, for an interesting interview.

Berra: I just want to thank everyone who made this day necessary.

You can see now how Yogi won the most World Series rings of any Yankee ever.  He never let anything get to him.
