    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Caption Contest: Bye Bye Ben

Tyler Durden's picture


It would seem, after 8 years at the helm of the Federal Reserve, that Ben Bernanke's colleagues were a little too busy fielding calls from Emerging Market bankers to wish him good bye. Just out from the Federal Reserve:


As Ben rides off into the sunset, one wonders whether if the now former Chairsatan at least got a parting watch for his epic effort at making the rich richer beyond their wildest dreams, while dooming the rest of the population to a lifetime of pain and suffering. A gold watch that is.

Finally, we hope the following story inspired by current events remains in the fiction rather than fact column (h/t Derrick):

(BN)  Fed Chairman Bernanke Arrested on Suspicion of DUI


Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) -- The outgoing Chairman of the Federal Reserve was arrested today after reportedly racing his cherry red Lamborghini Murcielago down Collins Avenue in South Beach, Miami. Local police arrested Mr. Bernanke on suspicion of DUI after finding a two liter bottle of sizzurp under the driver's seat and an ounce of grand daddy purps in the glove box.

The halls of Congress a cacophony of insane distraction.

The vaults of the fed empty.

One man to hit the "print" button.

The long arm of the law complicit.

The wolves of wallstreet fat and content in their dens.

Marble floors, palatial setting.... good job, liar.  You make Lucifer proud.  Such ego, such praise, yet "no one knows how gold prices work".  Fucking liar.

How you are able sleep at night will always perplex me, but what your personality is and who you are will never be mistaken, even years from now.  You are money, and money is the root of all evil.

Well he made it out and was able to hand the ticking time bomb off.  That has to be a huge relief, ducking the bullet, figuratively of course, of being at the helm when the dollar enters it's terminal phase.
