38. That's what I was thinking.
He consulted with AN economist.

Anyone can call himself an economist. There is no certifying agency to issue the title 'economist'. So Professor Mankiw's unnamed consultant could have been some schizophrenic skid row bum named Mr. Economist for all we know.

But I digress. It probably was Geithner or Summers, maybe a similarly sycophantic hack from the Clinton administration who stroked his palm.
