This final note on Thanksgiving.

You may know former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker as the guy who tamed inflation, but apparently, he cooks a mean Thanksgiving turkey.

A few holidays back, he had a Turkey cooking contest with former white house economic adviser Austan Goolsbee. We called up Goolsbee to ask about losing the contest.
