Greenspan "appears" at Davos

An economist friend just returned from that World Economic Forum in Davos. He was to appear on a panel along with Alan Greenspan to discuss some aspects of the global economy. Greenspan, however, upstaged him and the other participants in a most unusual way... giving his presentation via hologram, transported in from a high-tech studio in DC. I can find nothing on this on any news-site, but nonetheless true. It reminds one... Greenspan should long ago have stopped encouraging people to believe he is God. He kept interest rates too low for far too long, and ignored warnings about dangers in the mortgage market.

My economist friend added "And as with God only part of the audience saw him (with the hologram you can only see 120 degrees...)"
