Anyway, God forbid that Gordy gets to the age 90 before he has learnt something about economics, the markets, banks and other assorted topics that one would have thought he had an inkling. Needless to say he appears in the Times' Money Central Top Ten of those most responsible. If you vote at the bottom you'll also see that he's (was) in the top 3 along with GWB and Alan Greenspan; needless to say there's at least one major US sub-prime lender in there but he can always use the (true) excuse that the US government 'encouraged' him to do so.
