Keith, thanks for ruining my weekend.

I vote for the hidden agenda part too.
Heck George Soros is one of the few that admits ... Find out what the government is doing, and how to profit from it and get out before everyone catches on.
I think he was actively playing the stock and housing market while manipulating different aspects of the economy and making speeches.
Cool.

Corrupt, negligent, ugly.

But not dumb. I think he knew exactly what he was doing. It was all part of a plan to confiscate wealth from the middle class.

"Before the whole financial system walks off to London?"

I thought he was supposed to praise our American financial markets. Also, at this point it's anyone's guess whether the housing crash is over or not, at least the economy is still quite good. There's lots of jobs being created here in the West...

He has lost his mind. He is full of fancy economic terms that he spews out randomly. The guy should be in prison. He is just another white collar crook who hides behind the bushies. Anyone seen the show little bush? I'm sure greenspan will have a cameo.

Anonymous said...

I think he has realized he made a mistake by pumping in all that liquidity after the hi tech crash in 2000. He is just hoping that the ensuing bubble (housing) he created does not crash.

Corrupt! Head of the "private" federal reserve, banks lowered mortgage requirements/standards to a all time low. Any 5th grader could have told you what would happen. It did. No surprise here.

borkafatty said...

And the our Fuhrer the Piece of Shit Pretzel-dent Bush gives out 2.2% raises to federal workers , but I still find it irresponsible when the deficit and war costs are taken into consideration. Of course, he probably doesn't know anything about balancing a checkbook anyway, you know, with the "fuzzy math" and all.....

rense.com is now a legitimate news source as well, I see.

They don't sell newsletters for gold. No, they just sell a newsletter that says the holocaust never happened.

Corrupt yes

A man corrupted by power. He knows that gold is money, and phony Federal Reserve Notes are not. You can easily find his 1966 essay "Gold and Economic Freedom" on the internet. In this, he gives a fairly good explanation of how money came into existence and what it is. Also see Murray Rothbard's "What Has the Government Done to Our Money" at www.mises.org. There is an abreviated version of Greenspan's article floating around, so make sure you get complete copy. If www.gold-eagle.com and www.fame.org still have theirs available, they are complete.

Bork,

So are you 40lbs over weight or more? Did you try the pills advertized here and on the G Gordon Liddy show? Did the pills produce the miracle weight loss promised?

How about the hair pills advertized? Did you grow a full head of hair in 3 weeks like promised?

No? Yeah too bad, the fucking kikes are responsbible for that too.

Alan Greenspan set out to destroy the Federal Reserve system from within. He's a goldbug from way-back, and has stated publicly the moral or economic principles in his earlier work contiue to be valid.

Folks, we have just had history's greatest object lesson in The Fraud That Is Paper Money.

This play has only just started its 3rd Act.

Got Gold?

sk said...

He had a Character Flaw. He climbed the greasy pole by being liked and couldn't change and be the grinch, the scrooge once in a while once he became Governor

William McChesney Martin, Fed Chairman from 1951 to 1970, said the central bank's role was to "take away the punch bowl just when the party gets going".

Sadly, he was smart enough to plan and execute the other options and prolong the party and keep his "loved" meter charged up.

Now we have the problems.

You mean the little Green man who raised the rates to 9% just before the 2000 election, and crashed the economy with plenty of time left to vote?
The Fed also initiated the great depression. (In spite of the propaganda to the contrary.) Berneke has plenty of time to play the heavy. He is going to pull down the screws hard. I would be running for the exits. Old money cannot stand you people getting rich. But they love fire sales.

Right ON King Borka.

To me he has to be incompentent.

There was no economic reason to lower the discount rate as much as he did.

The Iraq was alone was enough stimulus to the economy.

He had to know lowering rates allowed low wage earners to acquire homes they really couldn't afford and that low interest rates could never be sustainable over any period of time.

Alot of innocent homeowners have lost everything they worked for as the flippers and speculators ravaged the housing market.

How did he stay in this position for so long?

Very sad!!!

FlyingMonkeyWarrior said...

It's been a week since the "news" cameout. Why isn'tthe dollar collapsing yet?

below .80 and look out below.
It will be a swift stealth move.
Right now it is treading water. Not good.

FlyingMonkeyWarrior said...

connect the dots.........
I will say it again.

The (low tax) Trade Agreement with the US and China expires at the end of Dec. 06.
Frees things up for re negotiation of the friendly import tax environment the US importers have had with China manufactured goods.
The new Dem's in controll of the lagaslative branch of the US Gevernment want to tax China's imports at 27% as punishment for keeping the Yen artifically low against the USD.
Then the SHTF.
It is a little more complicated than the USD- will or won't crash.
There is an international chess game going on now between Saudi, US and China. Who will Blink first? No one knows.
Why don't you guys get it?

FlyingMonkeyWarrior said...

Please. don't say stoopid things.
Oh, ya, that is why your an anonopussy.

Didnt Greenspan approve tapping into 401ks with no payback if used for home purchases?

Great, now all these sheeple who bought into this "get rich plan"
will have a big fat zero in their 401ks and home appreciation.
