US in ‘once-in-a-century’ financial crisis : Greenspan

The United States is mired in a “once-in-a century” financial crisis which is now more than likely to spark a recession, former Federal Reserve chief Alan Greenspan said Sunday.

The talismanic ex-central banker said that the crisis was the worst he had seen in his career, still had a long way to go and would continue to effect home prices in the United States.

“First of all, let’s recognize that this is a once-in-a-half-century, probably once-in-a-century type of event,” Greenspan said on ABC’s “This Week.”

Asked whether the crisis, which has seen the US government step in to bail out mortgage giants Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, was the worst of his career, Greenspan replied “Oh, by far.”

“There’s no question that this is in the process of outstripping anything I’ve seen, and it still is not resolved and it still has a way to go,” Greenspan said.

Emphasis added by me.

I repeat Greenspan. I said it back in January of this year, in this blog’s fifth post.

Greenspan knew the score years earlier.

Don’t you see? He fled his position as Federal Reserve Chairman. No one would listen. No one would change.

Result: today and tomorrow.
