download the mp3 of The Economic Outlook and Financial Industry Challenges
Speaker: Thomas M Hoenig
Chair: Dr Philippa Malmgren
This event was recorded on 30 March 2011 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building


I ask Mr Hoenig about market manipulation of PM markets at the 55.30 mark!!! And I shook his hand afterward... this is what we need real debate and discussion, peacefully and see if can change the BS that has been going on.


please circulate or call me a dumbass I do not care I will stay my course, but I want more free open questioning and debate


Now I am going to go grab a curry and head to the pub! Have a good day in the states!

obama standing strong for fraud, corruption, funding abortions and communism

obama said he was concerned about pay for the troops but this stop gap measure provides the troops get paid -

which is the only reason why Republicans put it in there.  Then the partisan idiots can say "Obama doesn't want to pay the troops!" when he vetoes it.

take a breath - you call them "idiots" because they wish to pay the troops?

BTW obama and dems also reject a proposal for president and congress not to be paid if there is a shut down

Thu, 04/07/2011 - 15:09 | 1146439 mdwagner
mdwagner's picture

No, they want dems to look bad.  That's the only reason it's in there.


I was referring to partisan idiots who haven't realized that Republicans and Democrats are corrupt to the core.  This is just a big distraction.

Why do we need troops?  

I say fire 90% of them.  We don't need to be the world's policeman/thug.  Bring our boys home!

You gotta love how the Repubs are such fiscal stalwarts when there's a Dem prez. If Obama were a Repub they'd be lifting that debt ceiling and and giving all of us a patriotic speech about fighting for freedom and God and all that good shit.

First requirement for being in the US Congress or Senate is being a good BS artist, although you don't have to be as good anymore with the population dumbed down so well.

Obama's export strategy--> Aggression, Fraud, Inflation to everyone in the world - I am certain Madagscar or Micronesia is next after Libya

obamas running the show - dont blame others.  like it or not he is the president.

how is he leading in any constructive way?

Right ok.  Why bother having Congress then?  He doesn't write the bills.  I'm not defending Obama.  It's not like he's any more destructive than Bush or whatever crappy Republican is president in 2012.

Let me put it this way.  I DESPISE Obama.  Clear enough?  However, your third grade level political discourse is making me think I could find a better discussion at Yahoo Politics.

so you deny that obama has repeatedly pledged to redistribute the wealth according to his liking

Thu, 04/07/2011 - 15:30 | 1146524 mdwagner

It would be good if he redistributed the wealth stolen by the banks.  But he's not planning on it no matter what he says.

Shouldn't it say House passed budget measure. Isn't Congress the term for both the House and the Senate?

Not if the senate covers his ass.  But it might be time for them to finally expose him for who he really is.  For his legally blind constituents.

Agreed, in terms of the dollar outcome.  It appears that we'll be defining the social terms of the inevitable disaster all along the way, however.  FWIW.

These fuckers just bought everything on the menu with a bad check, and are now bickering about whether to leave no tip, or leave a flattened penny with a picture of Helicopter Ben's face smashed into it.
