  Resolved Question: Was I dreaming when
Alan Greenspan is probably more responsible for the global economic crisis than any other human being alive. @Doc: I'm aware Doc. Which is why most people of the people in those circles consider him a total hypocrite.

  Resolved Question: How complicit do you
Although Alan Greenspan had already been replaced as chairman of the Federal Reserve Board (in 2006) by the time the financial collapse of 2008 took place, there are some who believe he contributed to setting the stage for the collapse when he WAS chairman. Do you think Greenspan has some of the "blood on his hands?"

  Resolved Question: Is Alan Greenspan a two
Quotes: ''-- that gold and economic freedom are inseparable'' ''But the process of cure was misdiagnosed as the disease: if shortage of bank reserves was causing a business decline-argued economic interventionists -- why not find a way of supplying increased reserves to the banks so they never need be short! If banks can continue to loan money indefinitely -- it was claimed -- there need never be any slumps in business. And so the Federal Reserve System was organized in 1913'' ''The excess credit which the Fed pumped into the economy spilled over into the stock market -- triggering a fantastic speculative boom. '' ', statists argued that the gold standard was largely to blame for the credit debacle which led to the Great Depression... (The irony was that since 1913, we had been, not on a gold standard, but on what may be termed "a mixed gold standard"; yet it is gold that took the blame.)'' 'the realization that the gold standard is incompatible with chronic deficit spending (the hallmark of the welfare state). Stripped of its academic jargon, the welfare state is nothing more than a mechanism by which governments confiscate the wealth of the productive members of a society to support a wide variety of welfare schemes. A substantial part of the confiscation is effected by taxation. But the welfare statists were quick to recognize that if they wished to retain political power, the amount of taxation had to be limited and they had to resort to programs of massive deficit spending, i.e., they had to borrow money, by issuing government bonds, to finance welfare expenditures on a large scale.'' ''new government bonds can be sold to the public only at progressively higher interest rates. Thus, government deficit spending under a gold standard is severely limited. The abandonment of the gold standard made it possible for the welfare statists to use the banking system as a means to an unlimited expansion of credit.'' ''In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. '' 'The financial policy of the welfare state requires that there be no way for the owners of wealth to protect themselves. This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists' antagonism toward the gold standard.'' Don't tell me he just changed his mind because he was influenced by other writers. I don't see how someone can go from believing in something so firmly and then abandoning it. original article
