Who is Greenspan?

April 12, 2010 by

This book does all the work so you don’t have to: a complete retelling of the life and works of the man who made the biggest bubble. It was not an accident. The author also makes sense of the long-running rap that Greenspan is some sort of discipline of Austro-Randian theory. It is also very well written.

Ah, from the Maestro to the Panderer, in just a few short years. Central planning is a thankless job, I tell you.

How long is it going to be for the expose on Maestro jr?

So without spoiling the ending or anything, what is this author’s take on the incredible thing that Greenspan said to Ron Paul when he autographed “Gold and Economic Freedom” for him – “I wouldn’t change a word of it.”

Was he shamelessly pandering to Ron Paul, or is he really a kind of Dr. Strangelove who brought down the house of cards once he realized that this is what the world was demanding, good and hard?

the spoiler is that Greenspan believes everything and nothing.

Very nice. Hadn’t seen the book before now **adds to wish list**But in reality, Greenspan just needed a bigger bathtub for his browsing of economic data. Then he could have super-duper planned the monetary base.

Who Is Greenspan (And Bernanke)?

Greenspan is the whisper of Keynes in the ear of an ego-driven interventionist. The whisper is perverse and the ambitious one who hears the whisper wants to glory in what is destructive of the foundation of trustworthiness. Now you know the essence of Greenspan and Bernanke.

What a great title and a great book cover! There needs to be a similar book for Bernanke!
