Paulson gives a speech to the Chamber of Horrors known as the Chamber of Commerce. The failure of this organization and the US Treasury to protect the US economy from destruction wasn't discussed. Instead, schemes to save the non-banking investment groups that are ravaging our economy were promised! And the profound inability to understand why the US is falling off more than one cliff is quite obvious. This blindness is deliberate. They all want something from nothing. They all want risks but safety. Meanwhile, world inflation resumes with a vengeance. And the Iraq war flares up even more and the desire for war with Iran cause world oil prices to resume climbing to the stars.
