Zitate Alan Greenspan

„Seit ich Notenbanker geworden bin, habe ich gelernt, in großer Zusammenhanglosigkeit zu murmeln. Wenn ich Ihnen über Gebühr klar erscheine, müssen Sie falsch verstanden haben, was ich gesagt habe.“

—  Alan Greenspan

1987 vor dem US-Kongreß, The San Francisco Chronicle, 9. Juni 1995, zitiert nach wordspy.com http://www.wordspy.com/WAW/Greenspan-Alan.asp
Original engl.: "Since I've become a central banker, I've learned to mumble with great incoherence. If I seem unduly clear to you, you must have misunderstood what I said."

„Zunächst, lasst uns darüber im Klaren sein, dass es sich hier um ein Ereignis handelt, das einmal in einem halben Jahrhundert, vielleicht einmal in einem Jahrhundert auftritt.“

—  Alan Greenspan

Über die Finanzkrise 2007-2009 am 14. September 2008 in "This Week" von ABC, AFP-google, 14. September 2008 http://web.archive.org/web/20080918145801/http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5i6u55aefaUf_RXJC4-5kcva-gyWQ
Original engl.: "First of all, let's recognize that this is a once-in-a-half-century, probably once-in-a-century type of event."

„Wenn sie zu groß sind, um Bankrott zu gehen, sind sie zu groß. … In 1911 zerschlugen wir Standard Oil. Na, und was passierte? Die einzelnen Teile wurden wertvoller als das Ganze. Kann sein, dass es das ist, was wir brauchen.“

Über systemrelevante Unternehmen am 15. Oktober 2009 bei einem Meeting des Council on Foreign Relations "C. Peter McColough Series on International Economics: The Global Financial Crisis: Causes and Consequences" ( Transcript http://www.cfr.org/publication/20417/)
Original engl.: "If they're too big to fail, they're too big. ... In 1911, we broke up Standard Oil. So what happened? The individual parts became more valuable than the whole. Maybe that's what we need."

„I was intellectually limited until I met her.“

Kontext: It did not go without notice that Ayn Rand stood beside me as I took the oath of office in the presence of President Ford in the Oval Office. Ayn Rand and I remained close until she died in 1982, and I'm grateful for the influence she had on my life. I was intellectually limited until I met her.

„It was the failure to properly price such risky assets that characterized the crisis.“

—  Alan Greenspan

Kontext: Much of the securitization took the form of collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) with senior credit tranches certified by rating agencies as AAA. It was the failure to properly price such risky assets that characterized the crisis.

„I know you think you understand what you thought I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant“

Attributed to Greenspan by Rupert Cornwell, "Alan Greenspan: The buck starts here" http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/profiles/alan-greenspan-the-buck-starts-here-595789.html, The Independent, 27 April 2003, citing an unspecified Capitol Hill hearing. However, as Ralph Keyes notes in The Quote Verifier (2006, p. 233), "This popular tongue twister gets attributed to the obfuscator du jour." The earliest known print attribution is to Robert McCloskey, U.S. State Department spokesman, by Marvin Kalb, CBS reporter, in TV Guide, 31 March 1984, citing an unspecified press briefing during the Vietnam war.
Earlier attributions include: "a high government official", Annual Report, North American Gas Tax Conference, Federation of Tax Administrators, 1967; Jerry Lewis (a sign pasted on the camera during a movie shoot), by Dick Kleiner, Hollywood Correspondent, Sumter Daily Item, Feb. 4, 1970; a sign on the desk of Suzanne Schroeder, collector of bureaucratic gobbledygook, AP wire story, Sarasota Herald-Tribune, July 3, 1973; Jack Nicklaus paraphrasing Richard Nixon, by Larry Dorman, The Palm Beach Post, Dec. 8, 1979; and "a Hollywood film director", by J.D. Douglas, The Third Way, 29 December 1977. Additionally, a thesis monograph by Michael David Katz, Georgia State University, 1973 is titled with the quote.
On the back of the first Stealers Wheel album, a very similar statement attributed to band member Rod Coombes is found: "We know that you believe you understand what you think we said, but we are not sure you realize that what you heard is not what we meant." The album was released in 1972.
See Richard Nixon: "Now, when individuals read the entire transcript of the [March] 21st [1973] meeting, or hear the entire tape, where we discussed all these options, they may reach different interpretations, but I know what I meant, and I know also what I did"

„If you get beyond the political rhetoric [and assembled a group to solve Social Security] it would take them 15 minutes. It would take them 15 minutes only because 10 minutes was used for pleasantries.“
