Catherine Austin Fitts Fitts has a BA from the University of Pennsylvania, an MBA from the Wharton School and studied Mandarin at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. She served as managing director and member of the board of directors of the Wall Street investment bank Dillon, Read & Co.Inc., as Assistant Secretary of Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner at the US Department of Housing and Urban Development in the first Bush Administration and was the president of Hamilton Securities Group, Inc., an investment bank and financial software developer.
She is cerebral, informed and, apparently, passionate about perceiving and disseminating the truth.
Her interview by Greg Hunter on USAWatchdog.com is brilliant, easily understood and, in some regards, even optimistic. In essence, she’s saying, “Yes, the problems are enormous. Solving them will be painful. We could see war as we move from a uni-polar to multi-polar world. Nevertheless, America can handle its problems-if we face them and act now.”
Biggest problem? National Debt. Government must soon cut expenditures severely. Biggest losers? Those corporations who depend on government business and subsidies.
Listening to her interview is well-worth your time. In fact, it’s worth your time to listen twice and take notes.
Here’s a previous interview of Fitts by Hunter that was recorded last July.
Hunter and Fits become surprisingly adversarial when Fitts criticizes Israel and Hunter defends Israel. The argument becomes heated because Hunter abandoned his role as pure interviewer (who merely asks questions) and entered into the discussion as an advocate who’s arguing a point intended to refute his guest’s opinion. This was not a simple interview, or even a debate. It was, at times, a fight.
On one level the fight was funny. On another level it was impressive to see two very intelligent people arguing with passion and knowledge. Despite the fight, the video is full of important insight and information. Again, this is another great “interview” of Catherine Austin Fitts.
Well worth my time and, I believe, yours.
