Bernanke starts new job at Brookings after weekend off

Comments (4)

He gets a job at the Brookings after leading the United States economy in shambles and keeping it there while he bailed out Goldman Sachs and a few large organizations; and then pursued polices based on the theories of Keynes and Hayek for the UK of 80 years ago instead of those of Stigler and Lindauer for those of the US today – and by acting as if nothing was different in their economies from 80 years ago of the UK to today’s US caused millions of Americans to lose their jobs, businesses, pensions and homes???

This man is the equivalent of a MD who prescribed leeches for high blood pressure as was done 80 years ago instead of modern pharmaceuticals. Shame on him and his followers and the Brookings.

HAHAHA, oh really now? To who?
They all work for the ‘same bosses’. It’s the same group of rich snobs that fancy themselves the self-proclaimed ‘kings and queens’ of the world in our neo-feudalistic society.

I love how much progress humanity makes – I mean, it’s like we’ve moved from 1776 to 1246 AD, politically!! Science moves forward, medicine moves forward, computers/electronics – they all move forward – but politics is on a perpetual bell curve – it moves up, then peaks and falls back in retrogression to where it started.

Perhaps someday; humanity can continue to move forward and upward with politics – and then, the world might be a better place.

If this idiot had taken a few more weekends off we all would have been better off. Don’t you just love how the media toadies all worship these idiots in DC?

We don’t need no Bernanke. We don’t need no Yellen. We need to shut down that den of vipers, the Federal Reserve to stop these crooks from enriching Wall St at the expense of the rest of us.

Bernanke, are you really that stupid that you don’t know what you’re doing? Or are you just an evil scumbag?
