Bernanke the Brandstifter

Watching Bernanke run the Fed reminds me of the play 'Biedermann und die Brandstifter' by Max Frisch, a dark comedy on the Nazi take-over of Germany.

Bernanke is poised even now with his box of matches next to the fuse running to the stack of kerosene drums (marked 'quantitive easing'). Somebody might want to think about stopping him.

It's all part of the plan to enrich the bankers, in which Obama was twice as acquiescent as Bush, strangely enough.

And everyone sits back and lets him do it.

Obama is more in thrall to the banksters than any previous president.

Yes James, just like Herr Biedermann.
