Nouriel Roubini (RGE Monitor) and Nassim Taleb (author, The Black Swan) on the current financial situation. These were two men who predicted the financial crisis. They are now calling for the nationalization of failed banks. They also rightly point out that the entire financial system is in shabbles, and it cannot be reconstructed so long as the same people who oversaw the collapse and utterly failed to see it coming remain in charge. I agree, and again thank Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) for voting against the appointment of Timothy Geithner. I also did not support Sec. Geithner's appointment. Hopefully, I'll end up looking a bit silly for having objected to his nomination. Time will tell.
