Dinner with Alan Greenspan

Typically wacky anecdote from Joel Achenbach in this weekend’s WashPost about having once been at a dinner party with Alan Greenspan:

I walked up and asked, point-blank, if he had the power to order me to take the cash out of my pocket and give it to him. Like, couldn’t he, as Fed chairman, just say, “Give me all your money”? He looked at me for a moment and then looked away, and that was the end of the encounter.
