“We go through life and we never think about oxygen. Give any of us five minutes without oxygen, it’s the only thing we think about. Confidence is like that. This wonderful American economy works wonderfully with confidence. You have to have confidence. It has to be justified confidence, but it is justified confidence in how our system overall will work. But there is no confidence about the fact that anybody’s check will clear tomorrow.”
