I'm new to the community here but have been looking with interest at the threads that have been posted over the past few weeks so I thought I would join in so I could post. I've been watching the news of the credit crunch with growing trepidation - it all just seems too unreal. I have been thinking for a while that we're being taken for a ride and then I read about this guys called Robert Higgs who basically comes out and says that those in power are claiming a credit crisis to unbalance our financial institutions I can't give you the link to the story but if you google Robert Higgs, you can look at the claims yourselves.
Then I read about this other guy based in Brussels - Dr Reinout Bracke - whose research on the global financial crisis basically tallies with Higgs' - they can find nothing in the statistics that prove that the recession is nothing but a hoax. There's a story on Indymedia about it.
What do you guys all think of it?
