Citáty Alan Greenspan


„Domnívám se, že (Řecko) nakonec opustí (eurozónu). Je pouze otázkou času, kdy všichni pochopí, že odchod představuje tu nejlepší strategii.“

„I know you think you understand what you thought I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant“


„There are errors in this book. I do not know where they are. If I did they wouldn't be there. But with close to two hundred thousand words my probabilistic mind tells me some are wrong.“ The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World

„under the gold standard, a free banking system stands as the protector of an economy's stability and balanced growth... The abandonment of the gold standard made it possible for the welfare statists to use the banking system as a means to an unlimited expansion of credit... In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation“

„I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you’ve probably misunderstood what I said.“

„government regulation cannot substitute for individual integrity.“ The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World

„Capitalism is based on self-interest and self-esteem; it holds integrity and trustworthiness as cardinal virtues and makes them pay off in the marketplace, thus demanding that men survive by means of virtue, not vices. It is this superlatively moral system that the welfare statists propose to improve upon by means of preventative law, snooping bureaucrats, and the chronic goad of fear.“

„If I seem unduly clear to you, you must have misunderstood what I said.“


„In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value.“

„People do not realize in [the U. S], for example, how tenuous our ties to international energy are. That is, we on a daily basis require continuous flow. If that flow is shut off, it causes catastrophic effects in the industrial world. And it's that which made [Saddam Hussein] far more important to get out than bin Laden.“

„We had a bubble in housing.“

„I know you think you understand what you thought I said, but I'm not sure realized that what you heard isn't what I meant“


„I know you think you understand what you thought I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard isn't what I meant“

„I know you think you understand what you thought I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.“
