Greenspan Fears "False Dawn" In US Economy, Warns Of "Equity Correction At Some Point"

Tyler Durden's picture

Equity bulls should be exuberant. The last time Alan Greenspan warned of exuberance and potential for a correction, stocks soared for a few more years. While Yellen's stock-picking skills have been questioned in recent days, Greenspan has once again weighed in:

  • *GREENSPAN SAYS 'KEY QUESTION' IS WHETHER U.S. FACES FALSE DAWN
  • *GREENSPAN PREDICTS AT SOME POINT EQUITIES TO HAVE CORRECTION

Although Greenspan declined to second-guess the Fed, he sees a problem moving toward "normalized" policy for his descendants.

 

Speaking on Bloomberg TV, Greenspan has lots to say...

  • *GREENSPAN SAYS `OPEN QUESTION' WHETHER INFLATION WILL SURPRISE
  • *GREENSPAN DECLINES TO `SECOND GUESS THE FED'
  • *GREENSPAN SEES `A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY' ON ECONOMY
  • *GREENSPAN SAYS `WE HAVE A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY OUT THERE'
  • *GREENSPAN SAYS HE'S CONCERNED BY SLOWER OUTPUT PER HOUR
  • *GREENSPAN SAYS PRODUCTIVITY WILL HAVE TROUBLE ACCELERATING
  • *GREENSPAN SEES PROBLEM MOVING TOWARD `NORMALIZED' POLICY

He is also an oil analyst...

  • *GREENSPAN SAYS OIL MARKET HAS EXCESS CAPACITY, SLACK
  • *GREENSPAN: WITHOUT MIDDLE EAST TENSION OIL PRICES WOULD FALL
  • *GREENSPAN: CRUDE WOULD BE $15-$20 LOWER IF NOT FOR MIDEAST WOES

And warns of US fiscal problems...

  • *GREENSPAN SAYS U.S. LACKS `FISCAL RESOURCES'
  • *GREENSPAN SAYS U.S. HAS `NO WAY TO FIND NEW REVENUES'
  • *GREENSPAN SAYS U.S. `RUNNING OUT OF BUFFER IN ECONOMY'
  • *GREENSPAN SAYS FISCAL POLICY MAY PUT STATUS OF DOLLAR AT RISK

And then there's this...

  • *GREENSPAN SAYS DOLLAR HELD `IN EXTRAORDINARY ESTEEM'

Except in Russia, China, Brazil, and India?
