But he’s incorrect in regards to the greenback nearly every time, and I have seen him implore his minions to purchase gold at $1700/ounce. (Anyone who did bought crushed.)

Still not being talked about is that there is a remaining unpaid steadiness of TARP funds in the range of virtually $9 billion.

Ford would have been affected adversely if GM had been allowed to go beneath due to components provide issues.
