Don't ya think that Benanke should be calling all his Central Bank Buddies over in the ECB, Bank of Japan, China, and else where to coordinated a Central Bank Rate Cut to save us from a World Wide Financial Implosion??? Here was a part of the last FOMC statement issued yesterday: "The downside risks to growth and the upside risks to inflation are both of significant concern to the Committee. The Committee will monitor economic and financial developments carefully and will act as needed to promote sustainable economic growth and price stability." Benanke is a freakin idiot!!! Him and his FOMC buddies are concerned about upside risk to inflation??? Where have they been for the past 2 months?? Oil and most commodities have collapse, dollar has been stronger, yet they don't see the massive financial destruction going on around the World??? DEFLATION is the only concern now!!! Maybe we need to get Alan Greenspan back in the driver seat at the FED, atleast he's been through several of these Financial disasters before and seems to know what to do!!! However, Greenspan(Easy Money), Congress(Oversite) , SEC(Regulatory) and others are responsible for this current financial mess. WE need a .50 basis pt cut NOW!!!
