MIT economists/central bankers Family Tree

I just pointed to a Bloomberg article which showed how most central banks of the world have been students of MIT.

Businessweek has a graphic which has put all this via a family tree . Paul Samuelson, Franco Modigliani, Rudi Dornbusch, Stan Fisher and  are the main guys around which the tree of current central bankers is built (Stan Fisher himself is the chief of Bank of Israel).

Trivia: Check the pics of the young guns at the end. Answers on the left lower corner…Bernanke looked quite a cowboy in 1975…and Summers is just plain unrecognizable…
