Financial Follies 2010
No matter how much things change, one constant is the Friday before Thanksgiving when the financial press and its many sources gather to lampoon major newsmakers in song, dance, and videos. This year's piñatas: Wall Street (particularly Goldman Sachs), BP, Japanese monetary policy, shaky pension systems, and the Obama administration. The 68th annual Financial Follies drew more than 1,100 journalists, communicators, and corporate executives, fulfilling its long tradition as the solid rocket booster of the holiday season. Kudos to producer Imogen Rose-Smith, who also spearheaded the book and lyrics with co-chair Josh Friedlander; Myron Kandel and Peter Phelan on videos; director Laura Josepher; musical director Jill Brunelle; and of course NYFWA executive manager Jane Reilly, the linchpin of this gala event.
