US Approaching Insolvency, Fix To Be 'Painful': Fisher

The United States is on a fiscal path towards insolvency and policymakers are at a "tipping point," a Federal Reserve official said on Tuesday.

"If we continue down on the path on which the fiscal authorities put us, we will become insolvent, the question is when," Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher said in a question and answer session after delivering a speech at the University of Frankfurt.

At least he admits it, on the other hand, all economic indicators point to the fact that the US is already quite insolvent, and very much in denial.

Lawmakers say insolvent? How dare you? We can't be broke, the Fed is still printing money. vic.gif

Until we begin to hold our lawmakers and bankers accountable there will be no recovery period. Ever. That may be the one last thing you can take to the proverbial bank.

The fact that we keep borrowing and still CAN'T stay afloat proves we're insolvent. The economy is done, stick a fork in it.

Corporations, the rich and the politicians who are paid to do their bidding are the three biggest problems aside from the never ending wars policy we can no longer pay for because WE'RE INSOLVENT.
They have an obligation to pay their fair share like everyone else, but they do not because they pay congress rather than taxes.
They "earned" a lot more wealth than anyone else and therefore must put more into the pot. If they don't like it, let them move away or good luck running their empire from a cell.

Nearly 20% of American's are unemployed or under-employed, couple that with 2 ½ elective wars, a Congress that cant stop throwing money at banks, corporations and the rich, while the average citizens picking up the tab are facing record home foreclosures.

There isn't even a significant manufacturing base left to facilitate real recovery. Insolvency? You bet.

Take a look at this.


What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Sorry, I can't buy into this anymore.
