Quotes of the Decade – a quiz

David Sirota has put together a great list of the top 10 quotations of the decade. Interestingly, most of them are from 2009.

Rather than list some of them here, here is a little quiz. Test your knowledge!

  • “They frankly own the place.” — which Senator let slip the real relationship between banks and Congress?
  • “Haven’t we already given money to rich people … Shouldn’t we be giving money to the middle?” — who said this about tax cuts to the wealthy?
  • “The investment community feels very put-upon. They feel there is no reason why they shouldn’t earn $1 million to $200 million a year, and they don’t want to be held responsible for the global financial meltdown.” — did you know that Wall Street was a victim?

To see the answers, read the article. I haven’t even listed the best quotes.
