    • Well worth the listening? Perhaps if you read between the lines and understand that Niall Ferguson, while he may have somewhat of a grasp of history, completely fails to understand, or to note, that debasement of currencies is the beginning of the end of empires. But who is anyone to argue with such a “credentialed” academic who relies more on appearances than on sound reasoning.

      Let’s take some examples. He places Paul Ryan, Congressman from Wisconsin, at the top of his list of those in the USA that understands, and has solutions to the country’s fiscal ills. Yet if you read what Paul Ryan proposes nothing within his statements address the issue of the ever rising problem of counterfeit money emanating from the Treasury/Federal Reserve. Ferguson also makes no mention of Ron Paul. And his answer to a member of the audience concerning Ferguson’s own investment decisions to protect his assets is more of a lighthearted response to a serious question. This is as far as it became worthwhile to spend more time listening to this “credentialed” academic. It probably also represents the primary reason that economics has been distorted in all institutions of higher learning so that those who come out of the various classrooms are brain-washed with ideas that are meant to benefit central bankers and their super-wealthy investors.

        Very good -- Establishing the rules then creating institutions which instruct on how to follow the rules created by another. Evolving the herding instinct towards full blossom, creation of the fruit and then death.

    • One of the drawbacks of living so far out in the sticks, poor air card connections.
