Doug Casey on Bernanke: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid (Part 1)


L: Before we get to today's subject, Doug, I thought our readers might like an update on the Wikileaks situation. "Operation Payback" has been targeting corporations that are trying to shut down Wikileaks' activities. According to a Guardian article, MasterCard's website has been crippled, PostFinance's is seriously disrupted, and PayPal's is under siege. Feminist author Naomi Wolf penned a hilarious blog post, Julian Assange Captured by World's Dating Police, which has gotten a lot of attention. And of course, in response to the original site being taken down, many mirrors are springing up. For anyone interested in reading Wikileaks, this mirror list will come in handy. This saga is far from over, and I'm sure we'll be talking about it again.

Now, on to today's business. Thanks for the link to the "historic" Ben Bernanke interview. It was breathtaking to hear the man who didn't see the crash of 2008 coming say he's "100% confident" he can control the U.S. economy. What do you make of that – is it hubris or stupidity?
