I don't know if I've given up, but Mr. Brinker has said virtually nothing about many aspects of our current eco crisis. Most of the callers I've heard seem fairly well-heeled, and do not seem to have the problems facing lots of Americans these days (ie: loss of job, underwater mortgages, high debt overhang, to name but a few). I haven't heard him give any advice other than his standard "no brainer" of putting money in a total market index fund and riding out the storm.

He did spend much of Saturday ranting against the possibility of government absorbing IRAs and 401Ks in return for an annuity check (for which he is to be commended). Other than that, he seems to be spouting the party line: Bernanke has saved us, things are getting better (even if you can't see it) and all will be well pretty soon.
