Final Note

Happy #FedValentines Day!

Kai Ryssdal Feb 10, 2012

This final note today. An early observance of Valentine’s Day, and evidence that economists and business journalists do indeed have a sense of humor.

The hashtag #fedvalentines has been trending on Twitter all day. You’ll get it as soon as you hear ’em.

Heidi Moore: Our love has no moral hazard.

John Carney: I like the way your yields curve.

Justin Wolfers: When we get hot and steamy, you make me too big to fail.

That was out very own Heidi Moore, CNBC’s John Carney and the guy who started this whole thing — economist Justin Wolfers.

If you got a Fed Valentine or one about anything business-related, send ’em to us or tweet ’em to me, @kairyssdal.
