    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

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.

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.

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

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.
