    1. LavrentiBeria says

      The commentary of Michael Hudson today at both Economists Perspective and Counterpunch is edifying, considering as it does peripherally the monumental insouciance of Paul Krugman in aiding the banksters to pass off their crimes as “cluelessness”. What a schmendrick this Krugman, but what else is new? My only concern with what Hudson has to say: An unjustified confidence in Sheila Bair who is as are any other of the players in this drama a creature of the system. Give me a name out of the Philadelphia telephone directory to run hearings of this kind and I’d feel more comfortable.
