Anyone that is bashing Greenspan is advertising the fact that they know absolutely nothing whatsoever about economics. Like him or hate him because of his power over the market, but there is no person on the planet who is more responsible for the vast wealth that has been created by the stock market than Greenspan. Whether you like it or not, or whether you are smart enough to see it or not, his policies have kept going what would have ended long ago.
Sure, without him "reigning us in" right now (and over the last year), the market would skyrocket in the short term. BUT...it would skyrocket out of control and come crashing back down when the party was over. His policies have allowed the economy to keep going and going and going such that the market is much higher today than it would have been had he unleashed it, which would have caused a crash and burn of epic proportion.
And to the fool who said in a recent post that Greenspan has pushed us to the brink of a recession, what the hell planet are you on?
