Solidarity forever, my friends! The Occupy Wall Street movement is growing and it’s a beautiful thing. Love the signs - how much is a pilot worth? A hell of a lot more than a Goldman Sachs executive if you ask me. So far, no one has asked me, much less them.

Maybe they should.

Welcome to the movement, captains.

Thoughts on the BBC Investment Trader

manicchill:

By now, many of you have seen yesterday’s BBC interview with investment trader Alessio Rastani. While many who watched were shocked by what Rastani had to say, within minutes Twitter was flooded with users speculating that the entire interview was a hoax. While the group he’s allegedly a member of, the Yes Men, have denied any connection to Rastani, his statements opened a new discussion about the motivations of investment traders today.

While it would be unfair to say that every trader goes to bed at night, dreaming of a recession, it is absolutely true that there are traders out there who do.

I know they exist, because I know their names.

What struck me is that we have basically signed over the keys to the economy to people who have vested interests that are in conflict with our needs, of needs the economy as a whole — never mind the world and the environment.

‘I Go To Bed Every Night And I Dream Of Another Recession’ - ThinkProgress

While European government and financial leaders are scrambling to prevent a financial crisis in the Eurozone that would likely throw the global economy into even more turmoil, stock trader Alessio Rastani took to BBC today to tell the world that traders were looking forwardto the possibility of a second big recession. “For most traders, it’s not about – we don’t really care that much how they’re going to fix the economy, how they’re going to fix the whole situation,” he said. “Our job is to make money from it.” Rastani, who also claimed “Goldman Sachs rules the world,” said, “Personally, I’ve been dreaming of this moment for three years…I go to bed every night and I dream of another recession. When the market crashes… if you know what to do, if you have the right plan set up, you can make a lot of money from this.” 

Wall Street bankers like Rastani, meanwhile, are large donors to the GOP’s presidential frontrunners, who want to repeal the Dodd-Frank financial reform law that was aimed at preventing another financial crisis like the one that wrecked the American economy in 2008.

And when we take advice from, or elect people with a vested interest in collapse the whole world is in trouble.

One of the main tenets of capitalism is that it allegedly creates competition, giving consumers higher quality and lower costs. But when competition drops from 37 national banks to 4, that “consumer wins out in the end” theory goes right out the window.

But don’t even think of regulating the banks!
