Glenn Hubbard for King of the Economic Galaxy

Glenn Hubbard, the Dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business, is an absolute riot.  By way of Ezra Roizen, I saw Hubbard’s renovation of Every Breath Bernanke Takes and Dean, Dean Baby!, economic / finance spoofs performed to the tunes of Every Breath You Take and Ice Ice Baby.  Sheer brilliance – the dean of every business school could learn something from this.  Schmalensee, when are you doing a video?

Update: Several people have told me that the person in the video that looks like Glenn Hubbard is not actually Glenn Hubbard.  Having taken a number of economics courses in my life, I’ve simply decided to “assume Glenn Hubbard” which I’m sure is something that Dean Hubbard would understand and be comfortable with.
