Foster Friess on Economic Crisis: Who's to Blame?



In these critical times it amazes me that so few actually look for the real cause for something so important as the unraveling of our financial system. I have and have posted much of what I have found previously on this blog, Foster Friess on this video wraps it all up and puts a bow on if for those that aren't inclined to investigate - Watch and Learn.

Obama will not acknowledge the true nature of the economic meltdown, if you don't get to the bottom of the problem, you can't fix the problem.

Caveat emptor "Let the buyer beware" on November Fourth we will find out if a gifted salesman sells socialism to America, socialism creates more financial problems it fixes.

Lets not buy this bill of goods!

It is because of these misconceptions of whom we should blame, that we should not blame anyone. People, especially the media, are looking out for their own benefit, and when any of their opinions are threatened, they immediately look for a scapegoat to distract the attention away from them.

With everybody blaming everyone else, we are not getting any work done in fixing the problem. That should be the first thing to get done or else the problem is only going to get worse.

We need to find a way that overcomes the quality of man’s egoism, and it needs to be a group effort. Michael Laitman what we need to do and how at http://www.laitman.com/2008/10/what-caused-the-current-financial-crisis/ .
