POLITICAL ESSAYS
The Con Artist - Part 4
`
`
Under the August 31st headline "Why A U.S. Subprime Mortgage
Crisis Is Felt Around the World," the NY Times quotes First
State's deputy head of Asia-Pacific equities:
`
“Liquidity can just be turned off, and essentially it is a
confidence game.”
`
`
Under the same-date headline "Stocks Rise After Bush, Bernan-
ke Speak," AP reports "Wall Street closed out another erratic
week with a big gain Friday after investors took comments from
...Bush and...Bernanke as reassuring signs...."
`
AP quotes Church Capital Management's portfolio manager:
`
"You've got all the speeches working for the market here."
`
Imagination says liquidity can be turned on with a word or two.
`
After all imagination is essentially a confidence game.
`
`
But not all play that game.
`
Back to the Times news analysis--
`
"Foreign politicians and regulators are seeking a role in the
oversight of American markets, banks and rating agencies."
`
For instance:
`
"The head of the Council of Economic Analysis in France has
called for complex securities to be scrutinized before banks
are authorized to buy them."
`
But that flies in the face of one of the principal clauses
of The Superpower's Declaration of World $lavery:
`
THERE SHALL BE NO TRUTH EVER AGAIN, ANYWHERE !
`
`
Imagine that.

Fantastic way of saying it. That sums up so much!
