  1. schiff is cut-off entirely too much, agree or not, with his larger view.

    the moderator is failing to moderate, either affording henwood over-talk-time, or allowing him to constantly interrupt schiff exclusively.

    how can the moderator not have done his homework to know that price inflation is happening.

    schiff should definitely consider the importance of wage differentials.

    and how is it possible that henwood accepts some government data, and wholly refutes others.

    in the end, this discussion, much like the others, is politically driven imo.

  2. weren’t derivatives essentially a creation of the free market, which drove inflation, more than cheap money in fact, enormous wealth and unaffordable debt burdens. it was actually the absence of the gov’t in regulating derivative cash cow that created the bubbles (from enron to bear stearns/aig). tech market before.
