Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Rick Mishkin (no, those names did not mean much to me either)

The last one is famous for his role in "Inside Job"

In 2006, Mishkin co-authored a report called "Financial Stability in Iceland". The report maintained that Iceland's economic fundamentals were strong. The report was commissioned by the Icelandic Chamber of Commerce in response to critical coverage of the Icelandic economy and certain Icelandic companies in the international business media. Mishkin was paid $124,000 to co-author the report. Iceland subsequently experienced a spectacular financial collapse two and a half years after Mishkin's report. According to the documentary film Inside Job, the title of the report was changed to "Financial Instability in Iceland" on Mishkin's curriculum vitae (CV). Mishkin's CV was later corrected to list the report with its original title.
