Brilliant Interview: Catherine Austin Fitts “Reinventing the US Economy”

24 Nov

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 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.

    Catherine Fitts, I bet she loves spending her big fat government pension.

    In most all of her interviews she repeatedly references her bureaucratic work.

    She has been giving the same interview for years. Pied piper.

    If you noticed the background in her home, it doesn’t appear to particularly wealthy. She might have a lot of money, but she doesn’t appear to spend a lot on her home.

    She may be delivering the same interview she’s delivered for years, but I’d never heard it before. In fact, I’d never before heard several of the concepts (like “disaster capitalism”) or insights she offered.

    Even if she’s delivering a “standard” interview, the issue is not whether she’s said the same things before, but whether what she said is true. If she’s telling the truth or something close to it, she can say it a hundred times and it’s OK with me.

      @Kanani: If you listened, you’d hear that she said she started her own business in 1990. She made her own money as an investment adviser managing billions. She’s a hard-working entrepreneur so you sound like sour grapes

    My husband and I have listened to her dozens of times on late night Coast to Coast AM radio. She is very impressive and seemingly serious; however, we are annoyed continually by her behavior. She often giggles, yes, giggles like a teenager, as she delivers her analysis and opinion. It’s as if she’s amused, perhaps delighted, by all the mounting fraud and corruption which are hallmarks of a socialist/communist regime coming to power.

    We truly hope we are wrong about her.

    The next time I hear some drivel maybe I can learn to giggle or even guffaw in a manner to warn the innocent.
