    Five years ago, Ben was testifying before a congressional committee on the state of the economy. It seems pretty clear that either the guy was/is completely clueless or he was keeping things under his hat for his own reasons.

    The next question would be, after reading what he said 5 years ago, why would anyone put stock in what comes out of his mouth now?

    Give him credit.

    How many experts do we have on why we entered the Great Depression and why we aren't in one (many are of course)

    We may be lucky to be where we are. Then again, we may be not.
