    Statement by the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets

    Washington, DC-- The President's Working Group on Financial Markets issued the following statement today:

    Conditions in U.S. and global financial markets remain extremely strained. The President's Working Group on Financial Markets (PWG) is working with market participants and regulators globally to address the current challenges and restore confidence and stability to financial markets around the world...
  2. Name "Plunge Protection Team" is an oxomoron should be the Post Plunge Recovery Team (PPRT).
  3. They have a mandate, just incompetent. They should have never interfered in the early days and let the market run its course. By interfering, they are just delaying the inevitable and making it much worse.

    "What the fuck do we do now?
  4. the LACK of such kind of intervention is why we had the great depression.
  5. With the current intervention... the end result will probably be a lot worse...

    I am certain it had nothing to do with the easy-money policies... leading to an inordinate expansion of credit and installment buying and fantastic speculation in the stock market...

    Nah... Lets just insist on gazing upon the symptoms... As usual...
