Ben Bernanke Didn’t Even Wait To See A Wine List Before Scaring The Bejesus Out Of David Einhorn

David Einhorn, manager of the $10 billion Greenlight Capital Inc., said he found a recent dinner conversation with former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke scary. “I got to ask him all these questions that had been on my mind for a long time,” Einhorn said in an interview today with Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle on Bloomberg Television, referring to a March 26 dinner with Bernanke. “It was sort of frightening because the answers were not better than I thought they would be.” […] In describing the dinner conversation at New York’s Le Bernardin, Einhorn criticized Bernanke for saying he was 100 percent certain there would be no hyperinflation and that it generally occurs after a war. “Not that I think there will be hyperinflation, but how do you get to 100 percent certainty about anything?” Einhorn said. “Why can’t you be 99 percent certain?” [Bloomberg]

    "Not that I think there will be an unplanned pregnancy and she'll decide to keep the kid, but how do you get to 100 percent certainty about anything?” Laxbro said.

    It's a 100%. I know certainty freaks you guys out, but it's a 100.

    Everything goes through the Fed's payment system. When the old hyperinflation hits the guy at the switch will just turn if off. Offshore dollars? Nope. Petro Dollars? Nunh-uh. It won't be allowed to come home to bid for "stuff". If you control the on-off button then you got 100% certainty.
