Some weekend humor and mourning

I just learned that Jacques Polak passed away. I knew his work, but had no idea he had attended Bretton Woods. BTW, IMF's annual research conference is named after him, not the other way around:)

I am saying this because I just remembered the guy who thought that Bretton Woods was named after IMF's pastures (bearing the same name) just outside DC. When you think about it, it might make sense: Some rich guys loved the DC facilities so much that they decided to rename their resort after it, especially since a conference would be held there:)
