Bush/Greenspan Meet for First Time
Although the dust has barely settled on the finality of the election for the nation's future president, George W. Bush is wasting no time in meeting with key players, including Alan Greenspan.
Bush met with Greenspan--along with Dick Cheney and other advisors--early Monday morning, and although the agenda was not publicly disclosed, analysts believe they discussed Greenspan's support of the proposed Bush tax cuts.
Another possible topic was a discussion about Greenspan's belief that U.S. debt ought to be paid off by the government's current surplus.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
