Reti 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4 d4 3.b4!?
What do people think of this move?
It seems quite sharp after 3...f6 4.e3 e5 5.c5!? (5.Qb3 is the 'safe' possibility).  Then:
(a) 5...d3!? 6.Qb3 e4 7.Nd4 and it looks very complicated!

Any thoughts on Santasiere's Folly? 1.Nf3 d5 2.b4

This move (5 d4) isn't given by Mikhalevski in GM Rep 19 and I can only find one game with it on
It seems fairly interesting for White, for example:
a) 5... c6 6 cxd5 ...
