Spengler Outs Himself

And Spengler is…

Why now? Does this guy have a death wish?

At first I thought maybe he’s pulling another caper. A new fictitious identity perhaps?

Then I did a bit of digging. As it turns out, it’s more like he simply got sloppy, got caught, and decided that he had no choice but to out himself.

I doubt that many of you are interested in this, but I think it’s the stuff of future legend.

  1. eh, besides, it’s not any one, or two, or however many cultures that are dieing, its a system, industrialism to be specific. large manifistations of cultures that fit within industrialism will be swept away, of course.

    we(whoever we might be) could debate the existance of an overarching industrial culture, i guess.

  3. The SOB came across to me as an unrepentant bigot and Muslim hater with one hell of a fucking axe to grind. Reminds me of half my neighbours.

  4. SAVINGS, CAPITAL GAINS, AND RISK-TAKING: TOWARD AN ENTREPRENEURIAL THEORY OF GROWTH

    by David P. Goldman, Bear, Stearns and Co.*

    *Professor Robert Mundell of Columbia University read an earlier draft of this paper and made numerous helpful suggestions. Reuven Brenner, REPAP Professor of Business at McGill University, aided my understanding of these issues in many conversations, and made numerous helpful suggestions for this paper. My colleague Evan Kalimtgis at Bear, Stearns and Co. provided indispensable assistance in the empirical formulation and testing of these ideas, as well as important insight into many areas of theory.

    Reuven Brenner was one of my tablemates when I had dinner on the second floor of the National Air and Space Museum as a guest of the Milken Institute back in the early 1990s.

    Goldman’s article appeared in the Spring 1994 issue of the Journal of Applied Corporate Finance, an academic journal I created in 1981 and art directed and produced for 24 years until it was sold to Morgan Stanley in 2005.

  5. ya doktor, i can guarentee that in 20 or 30 years a lot of people will be getting misty eyed talking about how they used to able to go to walmart and stock up on capn’ crunch, beer and propane, and get a good job to boot.

  6. Very interesting. I just read the Philip Weiss article from last year. Sounds like Spengler is a bit of a nut with a very impressive resume. Google Goldman articles for Asia Times. I found one with another firm where he was chief global economist.

    I only discovered him about 6 months or so ago. I always liked his politics-for-the-laymen opinion columns. I could never follow his more involved pieces on religion and philosophy.

    There was one piece on Iran and drugs that made it clear he didn’t know what the fuck he was talking about on the subject.

    It will be very interesting to see how this plays out.
