"Druckenmiller Sees Storm Worse Than '08 as Seniors Steal"
Mar 1, 2013
Stan Druckenmiller, one of the best-performing hedge fund managers of the past three decades, has a warning for the youth of America: Don't let your grandparents steal your money.
Druckenmiller, 59, said the mushrooming costs of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, with unfunded liabilities as high as $211 trillion, will bankrupt the nation's youth and pose a much greater danger than the country's $16 trillion of debt currently being debated in Congress.
"While everybody is focusing on the here and now, there's a much, much bigger storm that's about to hit," Druckenmiller said in an hour-long interview with Stephanie Ruhle on Bloomberg Television's Market Makers. "I am not against seniors. What I am against is current seniors stealing from future seniors."
Druckenmiller said unsustainable spending will eventually result in a crisis worse than the financial meltdown of 2008, when $29 trillion was erased from global equity markets. What's particularly troubling, he said, is that government expenditures related to programs for the elderly rocketed in the past two decades, even before the first baby boomers, those born in 1946, started turning 65.
