Even Nigeria Gets It

Nigeria gets it. So why not our distinguished Princeton/MIT/Harvard edumacated PeeEichDees?


We give our own Politburo intelligentisa at least 3-4 years before they grasp what is now painfully obvious even in Africa.

Pop hit by the Nigerian who several years back became a star by his ultimate classic song about the 419 scams:

'I go chop your dollar!' by Uzodinma Okpechi, hilarious:

"I go take your money disappear ... just a game ... You are the loser ... I am the winner!"

Complete with dancing girls -

Haha.. Brilliant!

Seems like Ben Bernanke's lullaby.

LOL @ "Bernanke's lullaby"

I guess after years of "Nigeria general" they can recognize a scam when they see one.

Real quick answer to why PhDs do not get it:

They are inculated in a dead system, but think they have it all figured out.  They are dead men walking, the zombies of our age, incapable or uncaring to innovate out of that system.  After all, what are the consequences to them personally if the system fails?  To this point, there have been no consequences for being wrong.  Money on the way up, money on the way down.

They are nothing more than wrote products of credentialism where academic and professional rewards are highest for group think in support of the status quo.

'Chop' means spend in this context. 

Indeed they would spend your monay as you wait for the check to arrive..

Here's the deal....I've got a rich cousin that has a fortune in Nigeria, but we can't get it out until we pay a fee.


Can you help a brother out? I'll totally make it worth your while!

Before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.....the Nigerians had already been there.


But alas.....it cost so much they couldn't afford a good press secretary.


Hence the edited paraphrase. That's one small step for man.....not a big deal for the Nigerians.

This Forbes contributor got it last year.

Fed exports inflation, stokes revolutions


Who is responsible for the commodity and food inflation? Chairman Ben Bernanke denies that it is the Fed.




So, let’s not fool ourselves. The unrest in the Middle East has a lot to do with food and commodity prices, and Fed QE policies may have a lot to do with those prices. Here is how the “Excess Liquidity Theorem” works:

  • The Fed lowers interest rates to 0% and embarks upon QE;
  • Institutions and investors, holding the “excess” liquidity, look for and find higher yields in emerging and other “opportunity” markets;
  • That capital inflow fuels those economies and drives up the demand for resources and commodity inputs;
  • Speculation in commodities adds to the demand and prices continue to rise;
  • The emerging economies have two choices – they can peg their currencies to the Dollar (like China) to protect their export markets and suffer inflation in their economies, or they can try to neutralize the Dollar inflows via higher interest rates, thus slowing their own expansions and, perhaps, impacting their employment levels.

actually think bern. gets it, just thinks it's an unfortunate side effect to his primary mission to protect the big banks.  Will be interesting to see if the strange sudden drops begin to happen more often in the oil market, as Fed / Gov may not be able to help themselves from eliminating market pricing from another market

Our beloved fed president doesn't get it because we don't count food, energy, and those things we need to survive in our inflation calculations. We include things like houses,flat screen tv's, and iPads.....you know those things you buy on a daily basis.

And right on que Africa (with South America soon to follow) are squawking about the obvious efforts by the US to export inflation.

<If we keep this up the entire world will be (even more) pissed off at us. Better that we fight inflate them over there than deal with our own inflation over here.>

Oh, our PhDs get it just fine.  They:

1)  Think you are too stupid to realize you are getting jacked, and/or

2)  Know you can't do anything about it even if you did know, and/or

3)  Are too scared for their careers or lives if the point it out.

The error in your thought process is assuming they "don't get it".  They do get it...however, their intent is not what they say to the public.  Their intent is to support the banks.  Period.

Bernanke, Evans and the rest of the Fed doves are too high on their horse to recognize the damage their doing.

Print to infinity, until a loss of confidence in the US dollar occurs. That's when the real fun for the Ferderal Reserve banksters begin.

It's Zambabwe economics or bust.

Good people cannot envision how evil people think. Therefore they assume that the evil people are simply stupid and not evil.

"good" people are those who suppress and constrain their innately evil desires; "good" people can envision the thinking behind evil plans, they just can't envision the execution.

Everyone is saying the one thing Nigerians are good at is frauds, and corruptions. The ironic thing is the English, and Americans taught Nigerians. These entrepreneurs swindled Nigerians out of their natural resources such as gold, diamonds, oil. Americans even deceived Nigerians out their lineages. So please don’t act if Nigerians are the only cons. Caucasians etc, have scammed the world repetitively, and are committing the biggest scam known to man right now as I type this period.
