    Bill Wolman really played a pivotal role in bringing the “dismal science”, economics, to the masses. In his gruff manner he was able to explain the significance, or insignificance, of various economic factoids ( GDP, unemployment rate, Federal Funds Rate, business cycle, etc.) and how they impacted the economy and stock market. I especially enjoyed his appearances on CNBC with Neil Cavuto in the early 90’s. Their sometimes heated interactions were highly entertaining yet very informative.
