We like to go a little heavy on the videos on Friday. It's usually a slow news day, and the last thing anyone wants to do is spend lunch reading about Sarbanes-Oxley.
So here's an entertaining interview with Alan Greenberg, chairman of the executive committee at Bear Stearns. We're not sure when this is from. It looks more than a little dated. Watch as the interviewer keeps asking him whether being good at anything else has anything to do with being a good businessman. Sports? No. Bridge? Nope. Magic? Not by a longshot. Luck? Not that either.
There is one sweet moment, however, when Greenberg is asked what his greatest achievement in ilfe is. "Having married the right woman," he says.
Altogether now: awwww.
