What a schmuck: The worst central banker in the history of planet earth has a something new to say [1]: U.S. government “activism” — fiscal stimulus, housing subsidies and new regulations — is holding back the economic recovery.

No word on how his central bank activism — ultra-low rates, radical deregulation, and nonfeasance of his regulatory obligations — helped cause the crisis.

Its not that he is a jackass who helped bring the world to the abyss of economic collapse due to his radical ideology — its that he is hellbent on causing the next economic collapse with the same radical ideology. This despite his zombie philosophy being proven so terribly terribly wrong.
