1994 Mexican Bailout (Newt Gingrich, Bill Clinton & Goldman Sachs)

1994 pre-dates my interest in politics. I was watching a video and part of it had to do with a Mexican Bailout. I found a shorter clip (below) and looked it up on Wikipedia. It is amazing how the same folks are involved over and over again in Bailouts (e.g., Goldman Sachs).

Ron Paul should talk about this bailout as well and direct it at Newt as one of the prime supporters.

Vote up if you agree!

I do like that one!

But, I don't think the Mexican bailout has ever been raised to my knowledge...at least in this go-around. I think it would land hard on Newt.

Always up to no good

Newt

....he was speaking as a historian and not as a rep. at this time :)

Not this time...here, he was Speaker of the House.

The only good to come out of this if I'm not mistaken was that

Carlos Salinas Price managed to use that "emergency" to convince the government of Mexico to resume minting of silver (and now gold) coinage. The coins are of course only collector and investor items, but the idea was to get them in peoples' hands again so when the time comes to transition back to hard money, it will be easier to do so.

I never even knew about this...

...and it seems that Gingrich played a very big role in getting it through. It's the same type of currency swaps that the fed did for Euro banks. I think this could be huge for Ron Paul to bring up.
