Greenspan points to market 'fear'


news.bbc.co.uk

Current financial turmoil is identical to that seen in earlier stock market crashes, Alan Greenspan has warned.

The ex-Federal Reserve boss compared today's situation to the crash of 1987 and the fallout from the near-demise of Long-Term Capital Management in 1998.

The interesting thing about Market Fear is that it has the capability to lead to self for filling prophecy.

Fear permeates the market, leading to people pulling out, leading to a crash. This is why usually market fear doesn't get a lot of media attention. I wonder if all the media focus on it this time around could support the idea that this crash is "supposed" to happen?

Remember, someone has put a crap load of investment into those put options...

isn't the Greenspan policies that allowed
unbridled credit expansion, murky hedge fund investment devices,
the way too leveraged futures and options and under collateralized bank deposits to cover those risky credit loans...and 0$ dwn =100% equity loans
and the relaxed mortgage standards = all tied in with the decades low
but ascending 1-2-3-4% fed rate...

all those fractured columns were supporting the top heavy economic platform...all those fractured columns Mr Greenspan knew were faulty
and had only a short term useful life...

Now Mr Greenspan affirms that the support columns he built were faulty,
but he's also assuming the role of a Sampson and pushing against whatever solid supporting columns are left....by telling the masses that market fear is rising & that doom is around the corner.

nice guy
