Comments

Best part of the whole talk comes towards the end of part 5, when Volcker is asked a multi-part question "If a dollar crisis unfolds, what would be the possible scenario...what would it look like....implications...how to prevent it?...or are we already in one?"

Volcker pauses...

scratches his head and says"... we're in it, you don't have to predict it, you're in it!"

silence...

slight laughter by the audience

end of talk.


Can't be more blunt than that.
