Live Webcast Of Ben Bernanke's Press Conference

Tyler Durden's picture

Today's FOMC circus concludes with Ben Bernanke saying a few generic words from prepared remarks, then answering Steve Liesman's and a few other journalists' questions, which all will boil down to the following: if the stock market drops by anything more than 1%, the stock market should rise immediately because will be there to prop it up, unemployment, inflation and the general economy be damned.

As it is such a commonly used (and well deserved) phrase on ZH, I would put forth that it be shortened to FYB!. It will save us all a number of keystrokes.

Its pretty fucking sad assessment on the state of our economic education when our fucking Federal Reserve Chairman doesn’t fucking understand economics.

Who are the winners and the losers?

Follow the money... maybe he does.

ASk him how increasing US total system debt to $52 trillion has been a good thing.

It seems that negative real rates are an indication that the FED does not have a clue what it is doing.

Of course Steve LIESman gets the first question. I have a question for LIESman:

My guess would be like toner cartridge ink.

Fish Gone Bad's picture

Is Liesman even a journalist?  That seems pretty mean to lump him in with any real journalists.

For a Yi, guy, that doesn't understand economics he's doing pretty good for the Bankster clan all these years.

Please send all hate mail to FYB at FFR (fucking federal reserve).

Dr. Richard Head's picture

That would make a great sticker.  Kind of like the HH (Hilton Head) people put on their cars.  Those a part of fight club could have it as a badge of honor.

I think its good to have the full "Fuck You Bernanke!" out there so it comes up on Google searches.

Minutes of Hate.

The Media should parade a new image of some bankster, politico or tit-sucking-hanger-on every 15 minutes.


Oh... they already do that.

Hueys are just so outdated - preferred method now is through the sewer, in secret so the Ones and Zeros pop up through the toilets in executive washrooms on Wall St.  And you thought they just went to visit the men's room to snort coke?

Isn't it funny how the meanings of simple words change?

Liesman better finish sucking off Bernanke before the press conference starts.

Why are you wearing a golden necktie trick.

Dr. Engali's picture

He needs to be wearing a Columbian necktie.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Rats you beat me to it, my thoughts exactly!


Dr. Engali's picture

I hate that when that happens. I hate it even more when I post my thoughts and read further on to find out somebody posted the same thing.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

So true. I've noticed thats happened to many people here. Perhaps great minds think alike? I wish I had more time to peruse the threads. I'll see an interesting article in the morning and by the time I get off of work it's history. At least it's great to know there are people who aren't wasting their time watching MSM junk TV.

When trying to understand the puppet masters and their symbols, icons and hidden messages, one must never overlook something as obvious as a large Gold colored tie being worn by the head fiat pusher himself.

When he comes out in Gold boxers (or God forbid Gold briefs) it's time to sell my PMs.  :)

He likes to wave with the left hand, the one with the gold on it. Nice liquiidty trap question that he avoided.

It would be good for the careers of those guys who wrote "Hey Man Nice Shot" in the 90s another kick at the can, and by their careers I mean humanity of course.

except that ben isnt stupid, id say considering his nefarious ways and ulterior motives, he has handled this brilliantly since taking the crown....................certainly he has proven to be much more calculating than the Mindless Money Printer character many people believe him to be .......................he certainly has frustrated our good friend tyler.................
