it's a bankster bash hosted by and attended by some of the most honorable and upstanding financial wizards of our time


What should concern any and all readers  of Zero H is the tone of this post

yes it is a statement of fact

but no, it is not the original Tyler Durden who clearly (based on a change in writing style and tone) has been co-opted and/or who has cashed out

ZH so sad, we hope the payout was worth it

"it does invite some of the more luminary thinkers of our time"

Interesting. Not going to spend much time thinking about it (the change in style). But, interesting.

Laura Tyson....Hm....What an embarrassment to the financial community.

Listening to her babbling whinny voice makes me want to spew!

How many companies has that bitch ran?

Who ordered the foodstamp story pulled down?

I guess LaBamba didn't like his party spoiled if the sheeple had a look at cold hard facts.

The user comments are the best part anyway.  As long as Tyler continues to show a keen overall awareness and post about the right stuff, peer review takes care of revealing the truth IMO.

He still graces us from time to time with his incisive wit and precise grammar. Too rarely, now, though. :(

Scott Minerd in his opening remarks represents views that are commonly discussed here at ZH: Keynesian endgame, debt super-cycle, etc.  With regard to El-Erian, you always want to know what this guy is thinking, as he is very influential in the mainstream finance world, and his thoughts do have application for global investment strategies.   The other two panelists, I could do without.

I cant belive i just watch that. LOL. Oh well, I am a dofus.

Wonder how much these guy got paid to spruke BS. 

I subscribe to the guy from australia and his FFT economic newsletter at  that guy has called many big events before they have happend, including the stock market crash in 2008 and the current financial collapse of the US. (currently happening) I found him from a friend last year, and he has some important work.

His oil calls are insane, and I have been making good money with them. He is well worth a look, if you want to keep two steps ahead of the sheeple out there.

Michael Milken is a pile of shit scumbag.  He knows it and so does his family who do whatever they can to cover his ass.  The guy deserves the death penalty along with the Bernank and Timmah.


Gives me an idea... Maybe we could fire Paulson's "bazooka" at Bernanke's helicopter as they shake the change out of Timmah's pockets high over the Rockies?   Milken's cancerous prostate can be tossed to the rotor blades....   Let the helicopter crash with Bernank, Timmah, and Milken on board.  Just so happens to crash right on top of dipship Paulson who forgot that gravity always wins.

Now, thats the crash we can all believe in.

The cataclysm of a currency is ahead of us. Debt instruments have a duration and a few trillion dollars of debt will be up for repurchase in the next year so. Who is going to buy this debt and the 1.5 trillion dollars in new debt annually for the next few years ? China will be cutting their purchases and Japan has to cut to pay for the Tsunami clean up. The end of the giant pyramid scheme is fast approaching.

I remember her debating with Sir James Goldsmith on the Charlie Rose show back in the early 90's...Goldsmith was arguing that US policy via GATT would impoverish the West understanding that US corporations would whore labor to Asia to increase profits vs. Tyson arguing global Utopian trade, however she was ignorant of the consequences of that reality as was Newt Gingrich and others.

Here's a re-cap...

Tyson was a whinny babbling idiot then too! What's troubling is I think she acutally believes she knows something.

Goldsmith was a successful practical businessman full of common sense and reasonableness everything that Rose and Tyson are not.

Goldsmith gave that stupid bitch a lecture in reality and she still has the nerve to talk shit and more shit

She should be hiding under some rock now.

God give me strength.

The same Milken who said last year that the middle class is going to have to learn to suck it up. "They (the middle class) will have to decide if they want to live in a nice home or afford to send their children to a good school." Milken, with advice like yours the middle class needs no other enemies.
