    Greenspan Warns A Crisis Is Imminent, Urges A Return To The Gold Standard

    If we went back on the gold standard and we adhered to the actual structure of the gold standard as it exited prior to 1913, we'd be fine. Remember that the period 1870 to 1913 was one of the most aggressive periods economically that we've had in the United States, and that was a golden period of the gold standard. I'm known as a gold bug and everyone laughs at me, but why do central banks own gold now?

    Alan Greenspan, Gold and Economic Freedom (1966)

    The position he held, forced his to say false things..

    You been bleating on for years about normalization and Greenspan deliberately held down interest rates to create the housing boom that was the objective of the administration
    He sat by and extolled the virtues of ARM's and securization

    He is one of the people directly responsible for the GFC that you have been harping on for close to a decade

    But, now he is supporting gold, so all that is forgotten?

    No not at ALL !!!

    He absolutely was the architect of the debt issues.. He was massively miss directing when he was a fed head (remember his if you understood that, you didnt understand it) spiel ?? He was a TOTAL manipulator.. But you have to admit, he was fucking good at it !! He spun those plates, for a very long time, and stepped out just in time to pass the problems on.. I tip my hat to that level of machinations !! You have to admire that skill set even if you dont agree with him.

    He was pro gold in his youth.. Pretended to be anti gold when it mattered to 'talk his book', and is back to being pro again now hes not got a book to talk.

    Really its him, and Volker, the rest have been mediocre or worse. Look at the fumbling and weakness of yellen v the mastery and purposeful missdirection of bubbles greenspan.

    So why give him any sort of platform?

    Add Soros to the Rothschilds team also..

    Filings Reveal That George Soros Has Made A Giant Options Trade - Mike Swanson (08/17/2016) | WallStreetWindow.com

    I would emphasize, Soros filings indicate more of a trade and put against the general market.
