Saturday, October 18, 2008 | 09:00 AM

That was quite the fascinating week, whatever your market perspective might be.

Its not very often that I get to throw up 3 charts or tables, and they tell the entire story -- but that is the case this week:

Comments

It has occurred to me recently that Bernanke may be mentally unhinged at this point by the pressure of his job. Like the volunteer fireman that starts a fire and burns down a house so that he can be a "hero" rescuing those inside, Ben has decided to burn down the financial house so he can rescue it using his theories of money printing and reinflating bubbles as in his speeches. Just a thought. dmc.
