Pan Greenspan Joins Pan Cogito In Calling For Temporary Nationalization Of U.S. Banks And Opera Houses















"Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve, told The Financial Times on Tuesday that short-term nationalization of some United States banks might be the “least bad solution” for the nation’s banking crisis.

“It may be necessary to temporarily nationalize some banks in order to facilitate a swift and orderly restructuring,” he told the newspaper before a speech to the Economic Club of New York. “I understand that once in a hundred years this is what you do.”"

Don't know any Belorussian music. Sounds fascinating.

I think we both know that a radical usurpation of assets through nationalization is never temporary in the eyes of any government. I particularly would not want this administration in charge of banks.
