Larry Summers On The Next U.S. Debt Downgrade

Summers on the cliff, last week on Bloomberg.  Runs 1 minute.

Fresh from his nap.

'Nobody who holds Treasuries should worry about getting paid.  The U.S. will meet all its obligations.'

If you remember, both Summers and Geithner guaranteed last year that the U.S. would never be downgraded, and then it happened a few months later, in August of 2011.  So Mr. Somnolence is choosing his words quite carefully in this clip.


Full interview:

Larry Summers on the economy, cliff, deficit, spending and taxes.


Here's a bonus:

Larry Summers As Realized In Cinema From The Social Network

Evidently, this meeting with the Winklevoss dipshits was before Larry's afternoon nap.  Had Summers invested just $1 million from the Harvard endowment in Zuckerberg's idea for a college-only social network, he would have made at least $1 billion (first investors in Facebook earned more than 1,000 times their investment with the IPO, and Harvard could have been the very first).

I know this is completely stupid and without merit, but just how the hell are we supposed to pay for this huge albatross of a medical system that is coming in two years. This just seems that we will continue into the abyss. I just can't stand it. DB your pops is a Doc right? What does he think about alll this in regards his practice?

("but just how the hell are we supposed to pay for this huge albatross of a medical system that is coming in two years.")

Maybe charge and prosecute the thieving parasite multinational corporations and Wall Street Banks and claw back a few of the trillions they've stolen, might be a good way to start.

The bankers, the politicians, Wall Street crooks, corporate clowns and justice dept. thugs all go to the same church. Burning down the church is the only way to deal with them.
