Classic "there's no bubble" quotes from 1929 - sound familiar?


As I keep saying, we've been here before, and those that don't understand history are doomed to repeat it. And it sure is looking and feeling kinda 1929 to me... At least HP readers on both sides of the current housing bubble issue won't be ignorant of historical bubbles and crashes, eh?

Here's a great collection of historic pre and post 1929 crash quotes, via patrick.net

I challenge HP'ers to post recent "there's no bubble" quotes (Bob Toll, Greenspan, NAR, etc)

Here's my favorite - sounds like "there'll be a soft landing in housing, not a crash" that we keep hearing today...

There may be a recession in stock prices, but not anything in the nature of a
crash."- Irving Fisher, leading U.S. economist , New York Times, Sept. 5, 1929

Brilliant. There was an article a few weeks back about how the great depression was (is) Bernanke's great obsessions. Maybe he was picked for his expertise in what is to come. http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05341/618606.stm

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.
