‘You Couldn’t Build An AIG Today’

This is a very well-written story from the Wall Street Journal’s opinion page (no subscription or registration required) about Hank Greenberg, who was recently forced out of AIG, the company he built.  At 80, Greenberg has a long view on the economic process, and while I agree with a lot of what he says, stories like this always strike me as little different from other "good old days" tales — full of a mix of blarney, nostalgia and misty, water-colored memories of the way we were.   

On another note, Greenberg is old enough to have seen the other Hank Greenberg play for the Detroit Tigers.  I wonder if he ever did.
