    I gotta say, I like that Chris Christie! He’s like an East Coast beer drinking version of Reagan, but instead of the Russian commies he’s taking on the NJ teacher socialists!

    love chanos but not buying the china collapse
    like the US selling ten times as many condos for millionaires as there were millionaires.
    like we did in the 80s

    somwhat like the US, they will write them all down, half of the funding foreign even less painful?
    and fill them up with people, probably faster than we did. I hear there are some people who need housing over there?

    I was indifferent to Chris Christie before watching the second clip, not I am completely unimpressed. He talks down Mr. Chanos with a bait and switch, then lets the “crew” rub his belly for the next 5 minutes. Once again proving that on CNBC volume is more important than any kind of analysis.

    Chanos is completely correct, it’s a punt by business to blame uncertainty on the government. Mr. Corzine is part of the “whocouldaknowd” contingent, that now is seeking to plan their way out of the mess. Forecasts for the success of such initiates are subject to risk, and ignoring past performance is a good way to makes future results politically inert. It also ensures good campaign cash flow. Tell the people what they want to hear, very brave.
