"The Gold Standard is not possible in a welfare state."

"I never said the central bank is independent!"

"The Fed's balance sheet is a pile of tinder, but it hasn't been lit . . . inflation will eventually have to rise."
:judge:

Q: "Where will the price of gold be in five years?"

Greenspan: "Higher."

Q: "How much?"

Greenspan: "Measurably."

Oh wow. I figured those were old quotes from early in his tenure as fed Chair when he was notably quotable about the real value/importance of gold. Clicked the link and found out these quotes are from last Saturday. Nice find Benjamen.
