Bernanke Should Go Back to Teaching

The following blog entry, from March 10, 2009 expressed my opinion on Mr. Bernanke. Eight months later the majority of the congress and a great portion of the financial world seem to agree with my opinions below. Rewind the tape and watch his opinions on the housing disaster and the direction our banking system took. He says everything is cool, and there is nothing to worry about as close as two years ago. He was as wrong as Jim Kramer recommending to buy more Bear Sterns stock 30 days before their collapse!

At least Greenspan had ... (more)

GM will emerge from bankruptcy a much more competitive company, and, in hindsight, the changes that are being forced upon the company through bankruptcy are ones that should have occurred many years ago." ...
