trader talk

It's worth watching these two videos. The first is entitled, "The men who crashed the world"  the first part of Meltdown a four-part investigation on Al Jazeera that takes a closer look at the people who brought down the financial world. It is important that we know the truth however disturbing because it will help us recognise the attributes we don't want or need within our communities. It would be nice to think we are not going to make the same mistakes again. 

The second video shows the result of our capitalist society - the end product. A person who doesn't care if the market is going up or down as long as he makes money - what the hell he is going to spend it on when it all falls down is anyone's guess. He knows that goldman sachs rules the world not governments, he knows the slide is gaining momentum but caught in his own hubris and invincibility he thinks it is going to affect everyone else except for him - he is wrong, it will affect us all.
