           Alan Greenspan, former Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank

“Alan Greenspan served as Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank for 18 years,
long enough time to really screw up the American economy.”
G.E. Nordell

“Capital doesn't pay any taxes, only people pay taxes. What happens is, you impose taxes on organizations
which then deflect them elsewhere. But at the end of the day, all taxes are paid by people.”
— Alan Greenspan, in testimony before Congress 21 May 2003

“I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear,
you've probably misunderstood what I've said.” — Alan Greenspan

“Greenspan's economics may be abbreviated to Greenomics, which essentially turns out to be Greedomics,
signifying a view that nothing should be done to interfere with business greed and the pursuit of profits.”
Dr. Ravi Batra


Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush on November 9, 2005
