A financial system designed by government lawyers shouldn't be too hard to pick apart. :)

But never fear, Ted Kennedy will save us all.

Its, kind of funny for Bernanke to have to get grilled by RP about the interference in the economy, and then he gets Kennedy after him next to grill him to fix(interfere) with the problems.

I'm glad bernanke didn't give Kennedy his opinion, I'm sure nothing good would have come from it.

Anybody still watching this? The tulip bulb thing was indeed in the 17th century, and the Congressman apparently doesn't know that the Bubonic Plague and the Thirty Years War affected their economy far more than the tulip craze.

Or did the collapse of the Beanie Baby market truly signal the end of life as we know it? You decide.

Oh! Even better! From Wikiepdia!


's Earl A. Thompson and Jonathan Treussard, "The Tulipmania: Fact or Artifact?", provides an alternate explanation for Dutch tulip mania: that it was not caused by irrational speculation, but rather by a Dutch parliamentary decree (originally sponsored by Dutch investors made skittish by the Thirty Years' War then in progress) that made the purchase of tulip-bulb "futures contracts" a nearly risk-free proposition:

...both the famous popular discussion of Mackay and the famous academic discussion of Posthumus, 1929, point out a highly peculiar part of this episode. In particular, they tell us that, on February 24, 1637, the self-regulating guild of Dutch florists, in a decision that was later ratified by the Dutch Parliament, announced that all futures contracts written after November 30, 1636 and before the re-opening of the cash market in the early Spring, were to be to [sic] interpreted as option contracts. They did this by simply relieving the futures buyers of the obligation to buy the future tulips, forcing them merely to compensate the sellers with a small fixed percentage of the contract price.

Given data about the specific payoffs present in the futures and option contracts, the authors determine that tulip bulb prices in fact hewed closely to what a rational economic model would dictate: "tulip contract prices before, during, and after the 'tulipmania' appear to provide a remarkable illustration of market efficiency."

I have read that the Tulip Craze has been overblown as far as its long-term impact, but it is certainly a good read to understand inflated prices and over-exuberance by investors.

I'm still watching - her statement just now that "I just got a message on my Blackberry that your previous statement caused the market to drop 40 points in one of my key indicators" was priceless.

I wasn't even expecting him to be on. I turned on the tv, Fox business was on, and Bernanke was in a hearing. I was reading the forums when I heard RP start to speak. I hope someone tubed it :confused:

Where are you watching that you were able to send a live comment? Any RP comments make it through moderation?

Thank God for Ted Kennedy, after all the Fed keeps telling us we lack confidence, and it is all psychological. That is a little something Ted Kennedy knows about considering he has built the titanic psychological industry that runs our educational system. I am certainly glad we have him around policy for the American people....NOT

TED KENNEDY has done more destruction to America/AMERICANS via "CLASSIFICATIONS and RACE" (Yes TED KENNEDY continues his RACIST POLICIES).

bump on a You Tube Posting of the hearing.

I did receive some messages, that Bernake's Voice and Lips were shaking and fluttering throughout the hearing... NERVOUS AS HELL!

The CNN live stream had a comment box underneath. I didn't watch to see if any comments went through to broadcast show afterwards. I was watching it at first on RonPaulTelevision channel at Free Media Networks cause I embedded the RP channel on my Myspace page. Then I switched to the CNN live stream cause I wanted to make sure it was in real time (it was).

What is he DOING!? I couldn't even concentrate. All I could see was his bald head moving and distracting me...

Ron got the last word in, that was very nice.
He showed great composure, did not have that usual urgency in his voice that some may percieve as a panicky or nagging tone, he was a ROCK.

The allusion to fascism was nicely done also, he did not have to drop the F-word, but anybody with a few neurons to fire across knew exactly what he meant.

Mark my words, the fed will lose control of this, and they will not have the option of jacking overnight rates to 21% this time, it would mean an instant and massive deflationary collapse. I just hope that they lose control before the convention, or at least the election.

I am beginning to realize that only severe economic and social PAIN will bring about change.
On the other side waits two outomes; totalitarian state or a new American Renaissance, the public's willingness to accept truth will determine which is to come to pass.

Excellent analysis.
