Smart Money 30 Video

I did a video interview with Smart Money a few months ago — warning that the credit and financial crisis about to get a lot worse — and by the time they were ready to post it, the Dow had already plummeted 2000 points (or as its been known around here lately, Tuesday).

They had me come in and reshoot another 4 minutes worth:

Media Appearance: Power Lunch (10/15/08)



I will be on Powerlunch from 1:15 to 2pm today, discussing the markets, bailout/rescue plan, Bernake testimony, and all things crisis related:

1. The new Bailout price tag is $2.25 Trillion Dollars

2. Ben Bernanke speech on why he took this job and WTF did he get himself into Stabilizing the Financial Markets and the Economy;

3. Paulson’s reversal regarding bank capital injections comes after a long period of underestimating the problem;

4. Regardless, we still have to deal with a nasty recession;

5. Something about the election/debate is likely to come up.

Should be fun . . .
