Students React to My Senior Seminar Course

Hi there Prof Langbert;

          This is ______ from your intercession 2011 human resources class and fall 2011 business seminar class. I just completed my curriculum in Brooklyn College. I found out today when I checked my degree-progress in the school's website. I just wanted to thank you again. I had a wonderful time taking your class and thank you again for the good grade that you gave me. Brooklyn College was my second choice when I enrolled back to college but I'm glad that I ended up in Brooklyn College. I had a great experience at Brooklyn College. My experience there is something that I will remember for many years to come. Again, Thanks much, have a nice day, cheers!


Good morning Professor,

I would like to thank you for being such a dedicated professional. Overall your class was my favorite at Brooklyn College. I'm looking forward to a long life of continued education, success, and most of all, happiness! Happy New Year to you and your family!

Dear Professor Langbert:

Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with me. I enjoyed taking your class. Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderfully, Happy New Year.

Dear Professor Langbert,

Thanks for the advice. ( I believe I'm using advice correctly this time :-) ).  Thanks for the knowledge you've imparted to me during the semester.  The classes on success, goal seating and ethics were informative and enlightening.

Best wishes.  Happy Holidays!

My Letter to the Kingston Freeman Concerning Gary Weiss's Op Ed

The Kingston Freeman published my letter in response to Gary Weiss's Op Ed concerning Ron Paul:

Dear Editor:

Congressman Ron Paul disavows letters which he says he did not write (syndicated columnist Gary Weiss, The Street – Freeman website, Dec. 28, “Ron Paul captures the crackpot vote").

Contrast that Christmas-sized portion of hate doled to Paul to your handling of Barack Obama.

In 2008, there was no criticism of then-Sen. Obama’s associations with anti-Semites and felons, to include Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and Father Pfleger. In contrast, Weiss convicts Paul without trial.

Paul is the only candidate to question both parties’ refusal to discuss the bipartisan commitment to the Federal Reserve Bank and its creation of income inequality by diverting wealth from the public to Wall Street.

As Nicola Matthews and James Felkerson of the Jerome Levy Institute reveal,  in the past few years the Fed has purchased $29 trillion in assets.  The assets were financed with dollars the Fed printed from thin air.

We have not felt the effects because central banks prop up the dollar.

To the extent that the toxic assets are less than the $29 trillion, there is a loss to the public, likely in the trillions.

The entire American GDP is about $14 trillion.

But that’s the least of it.

By tripling the money supply since 2008 (from $800 billion to nearly $3 trillion), the Fed and the two major parties have opened the door to the money center banks increasing the American money supply 30-fold.

The potential instability exceeds that of the 1930s.

So far, only Paul has raised these issues.

Maybe I can see Weiss’ point:

Why discuss the Fed when there are plentiful opportunities in the op-ed market to call Paul, R-Texas, and his supporters names, but few to discuss substantive issues?
