Watch the Students' Video

The dean of Columbia Business School was not chosen to head the Federal Reserve. So students rewrote a song by the Police, portraying R. Glenn Hubbard as being furious with Ben Bernanke, the guy who got the job.

(Soundbite of Every Breath You Take by the Police)

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

The dean of Columbia Business School was not chosen for the Federal Reserve. So students rewrote a song by the Police, portraying R. Glenn Hubbard as being furious with Ben Bernanke, the guy who got the job.

(Soundbite of Every Breath You Take parody)

SINGER: Every breath you take...

Every change of rate...

Jobs you don't create...

While we still stagnate...

I'll be watching you.

INSKEEP: The hits keep coming from NPR News.
