I will now read the actual transcript to see what Uncle Ben said, but my spidey sense tells me that he did not say this. It's hardly as though an original video or textual transcript is hard to come by. Is this what DP has come to? Resorting to sensationalized stories and linking to websites that try to sell you silver by putting words into Bernanke's mouth?
As if reason enough didn't exist for people to get out of bank deposits, you need to scare people into confirming the correctness of your savings decision by scaring them?
Two ounces of silver to the first person who publishes a primary source proving that Bernanke actually said those words.
Unlearning and self-teaching since 2008. Thanks, Dr. Paul!
