Comments on: Bernanke on the defensive http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/08/31/bernanke-on-the-defensive/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: fresnodan http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/08/31/bernanke-on-the-defensive/comment-page-1/#comment-42682 Tue, 04 Sep 2012 09:57:27 +0000 https://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=17171#comment-42682 The problem with Bernanke is pretty much the same as the whole government/ergulatory apparatus. The American people were being fleeced, defrauded, scammed, robbed and made to endure FORGERY on a historic scale. The “naionally recognized statistical rating organizations” (I like the imprinteur that “statistical” gives – so government like), Fannie, Freddie, and how many regulatory agencies that just can’t see any fraud acitivty going on. Really, to make a speech about finance and ignore that 99.9999999 – oh hell, one hundred precent of the problem was FRAUD means that Bernanke is part of the fraud and CODONES it.

No matter which school of econ-theory they espouse, they are the people who gave the ‘covering fire’ to the practices that maneuvered the Western World into the financial tar pit in which it presently finds itself mired.

Creating bubbles via QE is all the academics can wrap their heads around. You too, FS, seem to swallow the notion that it is only the bursting of those bubbles that harms us, not their creation. ‘Bubble without end – Amen.’ All-in-all, your apparent attitude stands in puzzling contrast to your nailing the matter dead-center here –

Oh well – good to have you back in the saddle.

Why are we so blind (or at least passive) to this robbery? It’s time to flip things on their head – http://theendisalwaysnear.blogspot.com/2 012/08/the-hazardous-morals-of-bankers.h tml

They are the people who gave the policy green light to the practices that maneuvered the Western World into the financial tar pit in which it presently finds itself mired.

I don’t share his politics; but, I too thought Clint’s speech was entertaining, not a fiasco. ~AH

Isn’t the Fed supposed to be independent? Is he worried about being reappointed when his term expires. If Obama loses and the R’s win control of the Senate that wont happen anyway. He should just do what he thinks is best for the economy, and let politics take care of itself.

Beyond that, their all millionaires anyway so why bother about what happens to their constituents? The loss of the US’s AAA credit rating showed they are only in it for themselves and their even richer friends, not the country itself.
