Should we be worried that an American with a peculiar German name is a top adviser to the President of the United States?
“This is very much in accord with the president’s vision from the get-go,” said Karl Zinsmeister, a domestic policy adviser to Mr. Bush….
I think we should, given that his name means, roughly, "interest-rate-master." The German word for compound interest, by the way, is Zinseszinsen: "interest-rate-interest-rate." Ingenious, no?
