Talking Bernanke

August 25, 2009

The title of the video is a little unfortunate. I don’t think Volcker would be a realistic option, I just wish we could find someone like him.

Correcting a brain-fart: Ben Bernanke is Chairman — not President — of the Fed.

Nice job Rolfe. Dead-on about the scare tactics being used.

You still leaning deflation-camp? Bernanke’s reappointment just might be the nail in the coffin for deflation. It’s clear that they’re going all-in.

Just seems impossible that we’re going to pay off our debt in deflated currency. They’ll make sure a good portion of the debt gets inflated away, no matter the barriers.

btw, any chance Reuters will make videos embeddable soon?

Adam….if you go to the Video tab on the left, you can scroll through to find this vid. There’s embed code there, which is how I got it onto my blog…
