I love James Grant (Interest Rate Observer), not that I agree with everything he says (but I usually do), but the respect I believe he gives the people that listen to him in the form of not pulling punches just because it coudl offend someon. One of the only serious, consistent and truthful (truth to power) commentators we have discussing financial, economic and monetarial issues today. Here is a treasure in my opinion and I hope even if you don’t agree with him, you respect that he is trying to give you the not so popular but much closer to actually truths then we usually get ever. This one of those cases where “you don’t know what you have til its gone”.

P.S. Jim, I didn’t know Bernanke was a spelling B champ, thanks for a little more depth into the man outside the basics. Kudos

James Grant from “Grant’s Interest Rate Observer” on the Bailout

This is a great video with James Grant of “Grant’s Interest Rate Observer” which is a financial periodical.  This discussion is about our current financial system bailout that is in progress and the scandal it has caused.  James mentions the lack of enforcement of punishment for reckless individuals at the different firms.  He wants a defence of Capitalism & Free Markets, I absolutely agree with his assertion.  We have throw the free markets aside to bail out firms that should absolutely face the consequences of getting into their current position.  Greed took over and now Fear has to be revived.

We need to get the excessive leverage out of the system.  Firms that have committed acts that warrant their firms “insolvent”, should be liquidated and forced out of business.  Why do we not let firms that have made good decisions prosper? Why not have firms that made bad decisions, suffer the consequences? Why does precedence all a sudden not matter when we deal with market issues? Decisions we are making now will have a long term effect that we are not taking into account if we want a functioning market system.
