"One of the focal persons, of course, is Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve. He maintained in several interviews that he
did not see this (the financial crisis) coming" says H. L. (Buster) Quist, author of
"The Aftermath of Greed: Get Ready For The Coming Inflationary Boom", on the recent bail out of the financial sector.
Buster Quist explains what a Derivative is and how, with leveraging, they changed the face of finance.
"Congress wanted to investigate and regulate the use of derivatives and the number one front man to go to Congress and insist the Government not
regulate the use of derivatives was Alan Greenspan", Mr. Quist says in this interview with The Above Politics Show.

What a great interview and to hear someone explain some of the reasoning behind the bail out of the banks and what they did to bring this about.
And if I heard Mr Quist right, he put the blame for the US Government not seeing this coming clearing on Alan Greenspan. Now if Homer and MArtin
could get Alan Greenspan as a guest to rebutt what Mr Quist says, that would be something.
I do hope that the problems with the economy aren't as bad as the guest you featured said was.
I also can't begin to understand why any one person like Obama would be considered the messiah or a key to economic recovery. I guess since he
inspires people the masses are more likely to feel more wanting to chip in.
Are we on the road to socialization?
I hope not.
I hope it's only temporary.
I also hope that this isn't the end of the "bear market". I hope many things. But I hope reality doesn't prove me wrong!
Great show, I felt it was really informative as to how deep the problem we face is.
