Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Friedman and Schwartz were wrong - Paul Krugman Blog - NYTimes.com

It's one of Ben Bernanke's most memorable quotes: at a conference honoring Milton Friedman on his 90th birthday, he said:

Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You're right, we did it. We're very sorry. But thanks to you, we won't do it again.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
