Power Point: Stop the free fallApril 10, 2009: 7:04 PM ET
"I think we can be reasonably confident that that's going to end within the next few months and that you'll no longer have that sense of free fall."
--White House economic adviser Larry Summers, at the Economic Club of Washington on Thursday. Summers compared the economic crisis to a ball falling off the table. Let's hope for a soft landing.
As Summers spoke, a banner unfurled behind him: "We Want Our $$$ Back." Sound familiar? That same message appeared on a banner when Goldman Sachs (GS) CEO Lloyd Blankfein spoke at a conference in Washington on Tuesday. Hmm, who will the gadflies go after next? --Jessica Shambora
