Re: Greenspan

Max keisar comments on Joe Biden and the janitor from Berkshire, the elite are beginning to blame the people and coaching us to "suck it up". The Greenspan "confidence" line is in the same line of thinking. These guys are out of bullets.

Japan Says It Won't Join Currency Devaluation Race



suteibu's picture

Bloomberg doesn't have the whole story.

TOKYO (Dow Jones)--A senior Japanese finance ministry official said Thursday that Japan has been taking measures to weaken the yen due the adverse impact of a strong currency on its economy, but added that skillfully explaining its position at the upcoming Group of Seven industrial nations meeting may be a tough proposition.

Hence the pledge not to join the race to debase.  Man...and everybody wonders why Japan is always the bitch in a relationship.  Man up, Japan!

Jimmy those UE numbers....people forget in a week. How many weeks in a row of upward revisions has this been?

someone please help.  I'm trying to watch data to help prevent virtigo but sometimes it makes things worse.  Example (I live in Chiangmai) the Bank of Thailand has these figures for a few weeks ago.  International Reserves 5 trillion baht, reserve money (in circulation plus bank deposits) 1 trillion baht.  That means for every baht there is about 5 baht in US Treasuries.  That means Thailand has 5 times as much "invested" in US debt than all the money they have in circulation.  Isn't that a completely crazy sitaution?

Greenspan - needs to re-read his 1966 essay. Fear is rational with current administration if that's who he was really writing to. Nobody blamed Exxon for exiting Venezuela.

Japan - won't enter devaluation race?? Just when I had counted them as not going rogue on the scheme. Maybe they saw it doesn't work against big dog Ben who's going to show them how to really snuff a fiat

One does not "rush to weaken" a currency.  These are acts of war.  I recommend discretion.

Greenspan should just go off to the corner and die.  He is a disgraced money-printing Hack.  His only accomplishment is destroying free capital markets through endless intervention into market pricing.

No he's the man who saved the world for the last decade. With help from cold Summers and rubin the lotion.,16641,19990215,00.html

The only way to fix a global economic meltdown is massive fraud. So we did that.

I love the article on Geithner...he's got the same attitude as the banksters; he thinks because he's the big dog everyone else will sniff his ass...sorry Timmy boy, little dogs bite as well.
