You can’t be serial.

Bernanke is an academic. He has no grounding in politics or how his comments can move markets.

He needs to learn a few things from Greenspan. Alan Greenspan could talk for 5 hours in front of Congress and say absolutely nothing. He was the master.

He would use complex economic terms that meant nothing to anyone and at the end of his diatribe, the congresscritters would be afraid to ask questions for fear of looking stupid..or worse...being bored to sleep.

In the absence of Milton Friedman’s call for the abolishing of the Federal Reserve, Greenspan was the next best thing.

You're obviously insane.

After watching today's hearing, I think they've gotten over that.
