My April Fool's Prank on NPR

Posted: Updated:

Yesterday, I impersonated University of Minnesota expert Davis Logsdon on WNYC, the NPR station in New York. After discussing the Madoff scandal, I revealed that the U.S. Treasury is also running an elaborate Ponzi scheme, selling worthless pieces of paper called "U.S. Treasuries" to unsuspecting investors. You can listen to the interview here.
