    Geez, Volcker looks like he's propped up like a mannequin.  Why can't an old rich guy just enjoy himself, and not tell us how we are supposed to live and eat and breathe?

    What an asshole.  A tall one, but that only makes him more of an asshole.

      ... because I thought he was at least a grade level over the other upward redistributionists.

        it was taken at a third way event where paul volcker was speaking on "the role of fed policy... and Dodd-Frank"

        Paul Volcker is not on the board of Third Way.

        Paul Volcker did not co-write the editorial referenced by the diary.

        I have no idea whether Paul Volcker agrees with the op-ed or not, but it would appear that kos is referring to the third way board members who wrote the op-ed and the only picture he found of them included Mr. Volcker.

        •  That's a relief .... (0+ / 0-)

          ..... thanks for the follow-up.

            paul volcker has written on the need to reform Social Security, but he was pretty vague beyond raising the retirement age over a long period. So I wouldn't say he's  with us on this issue.  But i thought it should be said that Paul Volcker wasn't a co-author of the op-ed, and i very much doubt that he's in favor of privatization, considering his stance on financial regulation.
