Greenspan has ALWAYS been a fraud - one of the worst ever perpetrated on the American people. He's an Ayn Randian. He doesn't believe in regulation. He is significantly responsible for the millions who have suffered financially from the financial collapse and he prevaricates, misstates, and obfuscates in an attempt to avoid taking any personal responsibility for his reckless handling of America's Fed during  Read More...

Well it's a good thing we have all these experts to belatedly tell us what we already know.

Getting economic advice from Greenspan is like Trayvon Martin asking George Zimmerman for fitness tips.

Welcome to the new feudal system. Money dictates everything and government does what money wants

and all of us are powerless to stop it, unless we make drastic changes to our lives that starts removing all money from the equations or we get our hands very very dirty.

money is making the decisions on what is best for money. AND what is best for money is NOT what is best for society nor humanity

When you add up the influence and depth of corruption caused by lobbyists, corporate payola, and historic influence of conservatism on all three complicit branch of U.S. government, American sheep are no more in control of this U.S. republic, than citizens of North Korea, China, Vietnam, etc. are in control of their authoritarian governments.

All freethinking and intelligent Americans want the “too big to fail” banks destroyed immediately and only the U.S. political mafia is preventing this from happening. These banks should have sank or swam and never been bailed out, but according to President Obama, if necessary, U.S. taxpayers will be forced to bail them out again.

Brought to you by the man who did every thing in his power to support the banks that caused the major collapse of the economy. He should just go away.

Greenspan was the beginning of the end with his term at the Federal Reserve. He was appointed during Reagan's term and has pushed for deregulation of all industry from the start. Greenspan provided the cover for this mess we are living in today and should take responsibility.

If there is one person who shouldn't be speaking about our current financial difficulties, it's Mr. Greenspan. His "wisdom" was the nexus of the problem way back when.

yep, but past performance, GPA, and track record only count in school, it doesn't apply to white collar executives, politicians, and conservatives

Remember his "Fed Speak" and attache case - this guy, at best, is a criminal and did more to bring down America than any one man. Oh, how they drank in every word and put him on a pedestal - what a freaking joke! Now Bernacke is printing 85 Billion a month to prop up the same instutions that are killing us.

I don't disagree but in all these comments I haven't read Milton Freidmans name. if anyone deserves blame its him and his any randian world view. he's the pig that popularized deregulation.

Greenspan, you are a breath of fresh air. Amidst the relentless Krugman-omics posted by HP, your voice of sanity is such a relief.

He DID a lot of things, for which he was both roundly praised as well as scorned. Whereas Krugman deserves nothing but scorn.

I hate it when those in power become so smart after they leave power. Where were their brains when they were in power?
