Mr Greenspan, I'm wondering wether you feel that you share any responsibility in the rise of this economic populism, because of course you took over the Federal Reserve during the Reagan administration, and when Reagan took office, CEOs earned 43 times more than their workers, and when you left the Federal Reserve, they made more than 400 times more than their workers.

So the policies that you pursued -deregulation, privatization, free trade-, have contributed to this extroardinary division of income that is really the fuel for this economic populism that you are now denouncing.

So, aren't you the one that has caused this crisis of faith in capitalism, or at least don't you share some of that responsibility ?

You mentioned Latin America, and of course there is a rise in left wing political parties and movements, but this is after decades of adherence to IMF structural adjustment policies.

And it's precisely because those policies failed to lift people out of poverty in countries like Bolivia, that you have this rise of what you're calling "economic populism"...
...it's because "trickle-down economics" was seen to have failed.

trickle-down economics : Théorie libérale du "ruissellement", qui prétend qu'en favorisant, par la fiscalité ou moyens similaires, les entreprises et les riches, le reste de la population en bénéficiera indirectement grâce aux investissements ainsi rendus possibles.
