When Even The Stage Attacks Glenn Hubbard

Tyler Durden's picture

There was a time when the only media ambush Columbia business school dean Glenn Hubbard had to watch out for was humiliating exposes from the likes of Inside Job's Chris Ferguson. However, when even the stage props are off to get you (as they clearly are at 1:56 in the clip below), perhaps someone is sending you a signal it is time to take a sabbatical from the media circuit (especially since any hope of making Fed head of even SecTres is now gone for good.)

That's what I thought. The real Hubbard seemed too old.

The guy is worried about entitlements placing a burden on the US taxpayers.

 

Never once does he or any other bought and paid for shill mention the massive corporate welfare entitlements pillaging the economy. There are gigantic hoards of cash and assets stashed behind shell after shell of "charitable" non-profit "trusts" or hybrid companies (where the pillagers are employees and the shareholders are their rented lawyers).

 

We are being duped.

Actually, IMHO it is BOTh of the above. This is what happens when you have a Fascist State with a Marxist President.

Indeed it is.

 

I was thinking of the question after the lighting card in the impromptu interview fell over.  The question slipped out of her mouth.

 

"What percentage of GDP should be spent?"

He sputters some bullshit about numbers he pulled from his ass.

That's what the fiscal cliff is about, it's about spending 101.3% of your nations GDP in government debt or spending 104%.  And he's broadcasting his complete ignorance about the matter.  It's debt, soul crushing unfixable debt and climbing everyday.

Listen to exactly what he was saying when he got bitch-slapped by the spirits of Jefferson and Madison.

Melissa Lee is an idiot.....Government has to grow? My ass it does. Get rid of some of these idiotic redundancies and useless agencies. Cut the defense spending and kill off the corporate welfare. If a company can't stand on it's own it deserves to die.

Trisha Tuckanowa. I love when she tries to snub Peter Schiff like a biatch.

The facades are getting rickety these days (how apt).

In other news, per hectare sugar beet production intensity has increased by 17 kilos in the last year, just in time for Father Winter's arrival for the New Year Celebrations.

Pity it didnt split the fuckers head open.

Notice to CNBC, USE HEAVIER PROPS, you know it makes sense.

What a list of Class A douchebags NYT Dealbook have speaking at that conference.

Inthemix96's picture

Aother thing.  Take a good hard look at mr hubbard.  Look at him, does he look even half like a normal hardworking bloke?

He looks like a woman with a large protuding adams apple in a badly fitting suit.  A good days work would probably kill this greasy little turd on the face of humanity.  Why people take notice of people like this shitbag is beyond me.  Ask yourself if you would have a pint with a skinny little fucker like this cunt?

I will bet ten quid this fucker is taking two weeks off after being "assaulted", by the stage prop.  This woman smacks of all that is wrong and going wrong with the world, it would amaze me if he could change a light bulb, pompous prick.

"He looks like a woman". Fresh news mate: Women are the toughest bipeds on the planet and when it comes to endurance women win hands down.

You wouldn't be Australian by any chance ??

"Thats what happens when you criticise the welfare state. " 

MrBoompi's picture

"There is no free lunch"

Right!  There is no free lunch for you poor miserable 47% bastards!  There isn't even decent-paying jobs for you!  No jobs, no welfare, and no food stamps!  Why?  Because the fuckers who run the country don't want to "change the tax structure" to pay for anything.

But this asshole will never admit there IS a free lunch for many people.  The guy who he advised, Mitt Romney, is just one example.  There are thousands more.  They've captured the political process and therefore write the tax laws.  Don't fucking tell me there are no free lunches, douchebag.

Second to Bernanke, Summers, Rubin & Greenspan he is the biggest douchebag to walk the face of the earth.  Mishkin's an ass too.

Email the prick and tell him he is a POS, I sure the fuck did.

 

yogibear's picture

Hubbard is another Keynesian zombie, like Bernanke, Summers, Rubin, Charles Evans, Dudley, etc. 

Over-paid Keynesian bible regurgitators.

No trailblazing, groundbreaking thought with these clowns.

What a fucking POS moron.  Mandatory spending and interest is everything we take in.  Inside Mandatory spending is TARP, Medicare, Medicaide, Social Security, Student Loans.

Read: Mandatory Spending IS entitlements.

And this fucking moron is saying we need a different tax structure for government?  Discretionary spending is NOT the 2.03 trillion dollar gorilla in the room douchebag.
