How was he so wrong then and so right now? I have no answer, but I agree with the vast majority of his comments.

Good point it was Reagan who started our dependance on debt, he was the one who appointed sociopath Greenspan to the fed, those two moves were the end of America as we knew it.

Sociopath is a good descriptive word for him. I can think of others too....inbred....criminally insane.........

You know nothing that happened here in the crash is much different from 1929, somehow somewhere folks should have learned from history. For the most part it wasn't stocks this time. The creative over leveraged self destructing derivatives in 1929 were made of stocks and they did learn that , it's just that they used almost the same formulas to create the CDO's that blew up this market.
