I always found it difficult to embrace Cody Willard as the financial guru some said he was. Maybe it was the hair, maybe it was the carefree attitude, maybe it was because he wasn’t Jenna Lee, or maybe it was because he came out of nowhere and just started hosting a show called ‘Happy Hour’ on the Fox Business Channel. Not exactly the prime pedigree for a Wall Street guru. But I guess I never really gave him a shot.

He really does impress me in this clip from the Tonight Show 2 nights ago. He and Jay Leno, an avid ‘Bailout Detroit Fan’, riffed on some ideas about the auto industry, why Citi is ‘too bigger to failer’, why he has ‘the best hair on Wall Street’, being best friends with Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser), and why the bailouts are causing the Depression.

All make for great financial conversation we rarely see on inane late night talk shows. Definitely check it out and let us know what you think in the comments section below:
