Narcissistic People - What do these Bank Executives (Bank Criminals) have in common.

  1. Bank Criminals display a lack of empathy. They are callous and self serving.

  3. They will put you on a pedistal, when it suits them, only to discard you later on, when they don't need you.

  4. Bank Criminals have a grandiose sense of self worth. They lie about their accomplishments and have feelings of superiority, haughty attitudes and excessive expectations.

Isn't this evidence of some sort of mental illness?

Can't we get them straight jackets and medication?

[-] 2 points by WatTyler (263) 2 years ago

That would seem reasonable, except that they are themselves blind or in denial regarding their disorder, and typically view their pathological lack of compassion as a virtue. And sadly, significant elements of our society have been propagandized to agree. See: Ayn Rand.

[-] 2 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

this is itself typical of mental illness - often those who are cannot grasp the fact that they are highly disfunctional . . .

[-] 1 points by WatTyler (263) 2 years ago

Yes it is, but many of these people are highly functional within narrow parameters. I.e., they are uniquely well suited to function within a system that is at its heart itself dysfunctional. All struggles are fundamentally struggles of attitude. Change the attitudes and you change the paradigms that reward sociopathic behavior.

For all the ailments in the DSM-V... I don't think overblown greedy ego syndrome is one that the pharmaceutical industry is particularly interested in discovering a cure for.

There are actually quite a few natural remedies for that particular syndrome around, but alas all listed as schedule one controlled substances (not surprisingly).

[-] 1 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

given the havoc they have wrought on society, I don't really care what tool we use.

the DSM IV makes it abundantly clear that there is not one single human being on the face of the planet that can hope to escape their lash - not that I agree with labeling the human condition as mentally ill - but in effect that is what has been done.

If it can be put to good and expedient use in this instance - I may or may not be perfectly happy, and that is a matter of irrelevance.

[-] 1 points by alexrai (851) 2 years ago

I agree. Check out: http://csp.org/psilocybin/Hopkins-CSP-Psilocybin2008.pdf

There is indeed a cure for the human ego, problem is these age old medicines spread like wildfire in the 1960s and scared the hell out of the establishment... largely because of the pro-social attitudes and behaviors they lead to.

Haha, yup, Literature: stuff that was once appreciated by a literate population... many many years ago.

Well now that you've got me intrigued, sure lets hear about it. I'm sure the insights will also benefit some of the less creative thinkers who roam around this board. :)

[-] 1 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

Now I'm on the spot - I've pretty much told the story. Sort of. The short version anyway.

The fact is I never really liked poetry - I had never had much exposure to it, and then I stumbled into a world one finds difficult to describe outside of allegory and verse.

I picked up a book of antholody - dissident poetry - I wish I could remember the name of it. It was verse from all over the world, translations of Neruda and others. I think Wilfred Owen was in there somewhere.

And a New Yorker whose name was or is Troup or Troop, I can't remember. He wrote of "whirling black holes of CIA space". 1968.

Once I got hold of some of Owen's work I began a study of prosody, which is really quite simple. And then I began imitating.

And breaking rules.

I do that.

I do that a lot.

[-] 1 points by alexrai (851) 2 years ago

haha nice, well glad to see I'm not the only one left on the planet who appreciates poetry. Black holes of CIA space has a nice ring to it lol, I may just have to check that out.

[-] 2 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

I wish I could remember his name, or even the name of the book. I think that particular poem was beat poetry, which I really haven't developed a taste for. But that line did stick with me.

The poem was a rant - and the title implied as much - it's on the tip of my tongue.

A Blatant Poem Boomerang

That's it. Written in 1968, I'm fairly sure.

The boomerang is, I believe, an Australian aboriginal weapon - so clearly the concept of words as weapons did not originate with me.

There is a fair percentage of my work that has little, if any, literary value what so ever.

this is absolutely true.

Yet as a weapon, contrived out of nothing and employed in the Art that is War, psychological war, war waged for control of the human mind,

some of my doggerel has been quite useful.

Psychopath

Psychopathy (/saɪˈkɒpəθi/[1][2]) is a personality disorder characterized primarily by a lack of empathy and remorse, shallow emotions, egocentricity, and deception. Psychopaths are highly prone to antisocial behavior and abusive treatment of others, and are disproportionately responsible for violent crime when in a violent emotional state or situation. Though lacking empathy and emotional depth, they often manage to pass themselves off as average individuals by feigning emotions and lying about their past.

See John Corzine, MF Global and JP Morgan. You know I really don't care that wall street is populated with sociopaths and gamblers but why do we have to finance them? The trade that killed Corzine was a conservative trade, gov bonds,but he was leveraged 40/1 with 6 billion worth of bonds. WTF should the nice folks who work hard and save their pennies in a bank account have that money loaned out to fund such excess. For 30 years the Ayatollah Greenspan (also see Anne Rand) and the mullahs from Goldman Saks have rewritten our banking laws to cater to these dysfunctional people. It didn't matter who was president and it still doesn't. In case you're wondering I'm no Paulie, we had a sane fed and a boring banking system from 1933 to 1980. We could go back to boring and throw wall street out into the free market where they pretend to want to be.

Exactly right. There are truly evil people out there. We must all be aware of that. Most bank executives are evil. We must read these seven key features of these people, and best, avoid them.

To the ladies out there. If your husband is a bank executive, then leave him before it is too late. You are not guilty for his massive crimes and great hurt caused against the little people. Take his money, keep enough for yourself (you are a victim also) and give the rest back to the 99%.

[-] 0 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 2 years ago

They DO great evil and must be held accountable for it! But they ARE not evil so much as they are ILL. Sociopathic greed is a mental illness. The "path" in "psychopath" and "sociopath" means "illness, pathology".

The people who have committed crimes - and those who have aided and abetted them - must be arrested, prosecuted and receive many years of compulsory treatment..

And WE AS A PEOPLE need to learn that Gordon Gekko is wrong: GREED IS NOT GOOD!!!

[-] 1 points by pathwhisperer (57) 2 years ago

Narcissists are ill, psychopaths are true to their nature. Fighting crime, corruption and evil without reference to (and a separate response for) psychopaths is like fighting with both hands tied behind one's back.

It's not accidental that we are at this turn in history. We've been blind to the predators in our midst too long.

From 2008, but nothing's changed: http://pathwhisperer.wordpress.com/2008/10/11/welcome-to-our-sociopaths-gone-wild-economy/ ; http://pathwhisperer.wordpress.com/2008/09/24/commonalities-between-wall-street-speculators-andor-fed-bankers-and-sociopaths/ . Far from being reined in, Wall St. sociopaths are even more in control.

Obviously individuals are punished for crimes not for what they are. Most psychopaths (but not all) are persuadable, concerning following laws and societal norms, through educated self interest or utilitarianism. But it is disastrous to ignore their presence.

[-] 0 points by TIOUAISE (2526) 2 years ago

"But it is disastrous to ignore their presence."

DEFINITELY! I'm not suggesting, even for a moment, that we should be "soft on Wall Street crime", but rather that we be "SMART on Wall Street crime".

I think the whole concept of SOCIOPATHIC GREED really needs to become a household concept, something the average Joe will readily understand.

And I believe that even the sociopaths among the 1% need to be reached out to - because they cause untold suffering to others but THEY SUFFER INSIDE TOO. If they get the feeling that we hate their ACTIONS but have compassion for the PEOPLE that they are, I think it could speed up the Great Healing Process that our nation is already engaged in.

::::::::::::::::Why 308,127,404 Americans Are Going To Get Hosed::::::::::::::::

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/guest-post-why-308127404-americans-are-going-get-hosed

-01/11/2012-

Last week, the US government’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), an agency of the US Treasury Department, published its 2011 annual report... http://www.fincen.gov/news_room/rp/files/annual_report_fy2011.pdf ...There are a few numbers that are pretty startling.

We’ve discussed before that FinCEN is the executive agency tasked with ensuring that every US banker is an unpaid government spy through Suspicious Activity Reports.

A Suspicious Activity Report, or SAR, includes details of any transaction that may be deemed ‘suspicious’. Naturally, there’s no clear guidance on what is/is not considered suspicious. Banks, brokerages, money service businesses, precious metals dealers… even casinos are required by law to fill them out.

If you withdraw an unusual amount of cash from your bank account, that could be deemed suspicious. If you set up a new payee in your billpay service, that could be deemed suspicious. Anything and everything is fair game.

Banks and other businesses who do not fill out SARs face hefty penalties, including imprisonment. If they disclose to a customer that s/he is the subject of a SAR, they have hefty penalties, including imprisonment.

When push comes to shove and they have to choose between a nasty penalty, or submitting a SAR about your unusual cash withdrawal, which option do you think they’ll pick?

Unsurprisingly, nearly 1.5 million ‘suspicious activity reports’ were filed across the US banking system in 2011, well over twice the number reported in 2004. On top of this, there were an additional -14.8 million- ‘currency transaction reports’ filed in 2011, a 6% jump over last year.

It’s an unfortunate trend which highlights not only the end of financial privacy, but also the massive amount of data being collected by the government to keep tabs on its citizens.

According to this year’s report, a full 36 distinct federal law enforcement agencies requested information from FinCEN (and even more who haven’t). Three dozen. And that doesn’t include state or local law enforcement.

That there are this many federal law enforcement agencies to begin with is mind-boggling… let alone the thought that some knucklehead at the Fish and Wildlife Service has access to bank records.

This is one reason why international diversification is so important– the likelihood of such collection and monitoring is greatly reduced when you bank overseas. Moreover, should one of these dozens of agencies or courts decide that your ‘suspicious activity’ warrants locking you out of your accounts, they have zero jurisdiction overseas.

This is a common tactic in the US; financial activity is one of the many, many areas with a ‘guilty until proven innocent’ burden of proof. You don’t even need to be doing anything wrong (which is the case most of the time this happens) for one of these agencies to freeze your account ‘pending investigation’ with a simple phone call. Good luck getting it unfrozen.....

remember: you don't have to be jewish to be a zionist. most people will say zionism=Judaism. its just something they hide behind so that way no one can criticize them. and of course if they do they are labeled anti semetism. its a very unique weapon that they have.

Quite correct too. Anyone who mentions "zionists" is most probably a racist. Zionism in its original meaning was the Jewish people seeking a homeland. They now have one, called Israel. The modern sense of the word is just an insult to call Jewish people. It is highly anti-Semitic.

True. Bankers exhibit specific symptoms of Narcissistic Personal Disorder. This is a condition in which a person has an inflated sense of self-importance, chronic deception, preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, a marked lack of empathy, a driven desire for attention and admiration, an intolerance of criticism, and disturbed self-centred interpersonal relations. They are often referred to as being conceited and generally have a low self-esteem, which they try to mask through reckless bravado. They act selfish interpersonally, with a sense of entitlement. At some stage, they lose all connection with reality. Going through the above symptom list a junior psychiatrist can easily tick 'YES' against the traits exhibited by bankers during this crisis. Arguably, nothing demonstrates bankers' sense of entitlement more than their insistence on getting bonuses even as they seem to everyone else to be nothing but rewards for failure. The laughable claim that they should be paid retention bonuses because they have special talents is conclusive proof that the psychos have reached the last and most dangerous stage of the progression of this disease- the complete disappearance of that tenuous but vital link with Mother Earth.

There are 184 members of Congress who, in 1999, proved their ownership by Wall Street when they voted to repeal Glass-Steagall opening the door for "too big to fail" banks.

For you kind perusal:

We are Wall Street. It’s our job to make money. Whether it’s a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn’t matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I didn’t hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone’s 401k doubled every 3 years. Just like gambling, it’s not a problem until you lose. I’ve never heard of anyone going to Gamblers Anonymous because they won too much in Vegas.

Well now the market crapped out, & even though it has come back some whatever, the government and the average Joes are still looking for a scapegoat. God knows there has to be one for everything. Well, here we are.

Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt yourselves. What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We’re going to take yours. We get up at 4am and work till 10pm or later. We’re used to not getting up to pee when we have a position. We don’t take an hour or more for a lunch break. We don’t’ demand a union. We don’t retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates, we’ll eat that.

For years teachers and other unionized labor have had us fooled. We were too busy working to notice. Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping? We’re going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America. Say goodbye to your overtime and double time and half. I’ll be hitting grounders to the high school baseball team to $5k extra a summer, thank you very much. So now that we’re going to be making $8k a year without upside, Joe Main street is going to have his revenge right? Wrong! Guess what: we’re going to stop buying the new 80k car, we aren’t going to leave the 35 percent tip at our business dinners anymore. No more free rides on our backs. We’re going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways. Our money was your money. You spent it. When our money dries up, so does yours.

The difference is, you lived off of it, we rejoiced in it. The Obama administration and the Democratic National Committee might get their way and knock us off the top of the pyramid, but its really going to hurt like hell for them when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and knock them to the bottom. We aren’t dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive. The question is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Main street our food supply…will he? And will they?”

Wall Street are cannibals. They'll eat their own when they're done with everyone else.

As the middle class goes down, eventually they'll take the upper class down with them. Who do you think buys all the goods and services that drives the economy? Stagnant wages, high unemployment, less buying power means those that make the goods and services cannot grow their topline. Guess what? Our money is your money. When our money dries up so does yours.

Cost cutting will only go so far in maintaining profitability. Soon the distress of the topline will find it's way to the bottom line. Eventually too, Wall Street will feel that pain.

I have no doubt Wall Street is smart enough to counteract this by finding more creative ways to make money. Manufacturing more derivatives perhaps. When they're done sucking the middle class dry, they'll be feeding on their own, like the cannibals that they are. That's real smart.

There needs to be regulation that prevents Wall Street from behaving according to their true nature - cannibals.

Lots of the victims of MF were farmers involved in commodities futures as they need to be to survive...No one would think they would have their money stolen from them because they were segregated accounts that were unknowingly re re re re - hypothicated against.

Like I said the only thing that will get you some QE is a real dump in the market and I'm certain the guys at Government Sacs can arrange that when the time comes..It's a rig, but so is the entire system....

Everyone should prepare for a dollar collapse....

First of all, what MF Global (and Corzine) did was stupid and well unethical. I dont know why a man of Corzine's stature and smartness ended up doing such a blunder, I guess sometimes people start believing their own hype. That of course doesn't mean we shouldn't take risks but then there are limits to risk taking. I am not sure what their risk officer was doing. If nothing else, Roseman should have insisted on diversification of risk. Anyways, enough has been said about them.

And 'dope', my firm did not get any of the QE money. We are a hedge fund. So no, I did not take a penny from your precious savings (incidentally, do you pay taxes?). But even for the banks which did (and there are hundreds of them), the money has been returned back with interest. So stop complaining.

I think he was over confident. The kind of bets he placed were irresponsible. As for the risk officer, may be you are right. But Roseman does not seem to be that kind of a guy. The risk officer is supposed to balance the animal spirits of the CIO.

Look people who wear a suit and tie look less likely to rob you...But you never know anyone really until they are in a situation where they are tempted.

Not everyone gained from QE...Probably not you either...I think everyone deserves a little swag from the Federal Reserve Ponz..But you just can't buy useless MBS securities from just anybody right? You can't just hand over money to anybody at .5% rate right?

Let's get rid of the Federal Reserve Gangtas and their manipulation and you know what? I might leave Wall Street alone...But since Wall Street, The Federal Reserve and Washington are apparently "all in" on the long con..I piss on all of them!

People "think" that as long as the numbers look good then everything is OK..

DOW, S&P, GDP, BLS...It's all crap! What is real?

The numbers....it buys the little people false security for a while, and lets our BOZO politicians and Central bankers kick the can down the road just one more day....Meanwhile everyone's standard of living goes down the shitter little by little.

The numbers are BS Especially (B)ureau of (L)ying (S)tatistics labor numbers and they don't take into account many variables and may not actually relate at all to what is going on in the street...

Take GDP for example...This number, an indicator of national prosperity can go up after a Disaster...It also can go up when more people are dropping dead. It's not a good way to measure how well the country is doing, it's crap!

I don't mean to bust your balls, but we've all become to dependent on a corrupt system..I count myself in as one of beneficiaries.

See, the Fed and Treasury does not have a whole lot of respect within WallSt. They are considered the bottom of the heap guys, the guys who could not make a successful Wall St career and ended up in these jobs (not all of them of course. Some did have very successful Wall St careers). As for QE, there were many who thought it was a bad idea. In retrospect it wasn't as good a idea was made out to be, but it certainly wasn't a bad idea altogether.

And you cannot 'get rid of' Federal Reserve. Sure, you would like a monetary policy that is less influenced by banks, but in reality that is neither possible nor desirable. You see, the Central Bank needs to listen to bankers, of course it does not need to agree to everything they say.

As for Wall St influence on politics, well corporations will always continue to influence government. It is then the job of the govt to decide how much they want to get influenced.

I cant comment on whether the methods of BLS are corrrect, I dont know what sampling methods and criteria they use.

As for the system being corrupt, well every system is. But may be a little less corruption is always desirable.

Even if you don't take the video seriously, (which you should) if we have a Central Bank that controls the money supply, then they are more in control of our country then the founding fathers ever intended. Look up the history of the Bank of England and Rothschild...

Other than that I can point to the recent activity of the Fed and QE that is costly our country greatly!

What makes you conclude that the Youtube video is 'very credible'? Does it cite any credible sources? Have any papers or articles in peer reviewed journals cited it?

As for the Federal Reserve, it was setup by Congress with the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The Federal Reserve system operates in accordance with law, which is Title 12 U.S.C Chapter 3 http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode12/usc_sup_01_12_10_3.html . The entire system is controlled by the Board of Governors. The Board of Governors is a 100% government agency. Each member of the Board is appointed by the President and approved by the Senate. Board members are not allowed to be officers, directors, or employees of any bank, banking institution, or trust company. In fact, Board members are typically economics professors or at least hold doctorates in economics.

As for the Central Bank controlling the money supply, it is there job to do so. You need a central body to control the supply of money. People cannot print their own money, and if they did it would be mere piece of paper.

And I think you guys give Rothschild way too much credit. I am sure they would love nothing more than to be as evil as you think they are.

As for QE, it was again a well thought out decision. Things might have become worse had the Fed not done that. Whether it's the CPM or QE rounds, there were sound reasons behind it. When a economy enters a recession, the values of the assets in a bank's balance sheet drops drastically. In such a case, inter bank lending (which results in liquidity) drops massively because banks are not sure about the extent of toxic assets in each other's balance sheet. Now a lot of these 'toxic assets' may actually be fairly decent investments in a non-recessionary economy. So the Fed needs to do two things, one is to inject liquidity into the system (hence the CPM) and the other is to bolster the value of the assets in a bank balance sheet (hence QE).

Now you may ask, why is it even necessary to save the banks or maintain liquidity? Well if a lot of banks fail, money supply will dry up, no company, whether it's Walmart or GM or your local store would not get any loans (short or long term) to run it's business. They will then have to shut shop, people will lose their jobs, supply of goods and services will fall sharply, many industries would be eroded and the whole economy will be screwed.

As for Ireland, Greece and Italy, each has a very different problem. I am sorry to say, but you don't seem to be able to even differentiate between the issues facing these economies. In Greece and Italy, it is entirely the government to be blamed. In Ireland, the banking sector does share a large part of the blame but it would have been avoidable had the government been a little smarter.

As for a monetary system being debt based, that' nonsense. I could just as well say that it' asset based.

All because some crooks make up a law..Doesn't make the consequence of that law good or right, ethical or moral..

The Board of Governors is a 100% government agency

The president may appoint the board of governors, so how does that make it a 100% government agency? It doesn't and even the Federal Reserve states they are a public/private entity.

As for the Central Bank controlling the money supply, it is there job to do so. You need a central body to control the supply of money. People cannot print their own money, and if they did it would be mere piece of paper

It doesn't have to be private. The dollar and all fiat paper is valued by a government's ability to tax it citizenry to maintain it's value.

Who owns the Fed Banks? Private Banks that's who! http://www.factcheck.org/2008/03/federal-reserve-bank-ownership/

As for QE, it was again a well thought out decision

Oh really.?..For some reason commodity prices went through the roof while the Bernanke was doing QE...causing all sorts of issues including food riots...Just to hide the MBS garbage that in any economy would be garbage.

Banks need to fail if they make bad investment decisions..That's what Capitalism is...Other Banks will buy the "assets" of the failed bank...In other words you don't need to keep propping up failures..There are other business' to take over for them.

As for Ireland, Greece and Italy, each has a very different problem. I am sorry to say, but you don't seem to be able to even differentiate between the issues facing these economies.

Doesn't it strike you as a bit strange that governments are losing their sovereignty to banks? Why did Italy and Greece replacing their leaders with bankers?

For one thing, we would need to reestablish a national bank, in the tradition of Alexander Hamilton, which would make low interest rate loans for infrastructure development projects, to be paid off over 50 years or more.

This would be possible since such a bank would not have to pay profits to private owners. Instead, the profit would go to millions of workers who would be employed in jobs that paid a decent wage.

Such projects would not be "make work" but would create real improvements in our economy, increasing revenue to the government that would pay off the loans.

[-] 0 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

50 years? And low interest? Wow. I salute your intelligence.

As for government owned banks, well both India and China have those. In China, the public banks makes loans not on the basic of due diligence or viability but based on whether the firm asking for the loan is a govt owned, does the owner have a good relation with the bank or province officials and such other concerns. Minor details like IRR and NPV take a back seat. Which works as long as Chinese have a savings rate of around 60% and the banks are flush with cash and can write off these bad loans. But if the savings rate drops these bad debts would bring the economy down to it's knees.

In India, public sector banks have only learnt to be prudent and business savvy. I have heard that once upon a time you would have to bribe the bank officials to get your loan sanctioned. In some of the remote village areas, they still do. Why?

So much for 'national banks'.

[-] 1 points by hymie (391) 2 years ago

Both India and China are doing pretty well economically aren't they? Their growth rate is better than ours anyway.

Some of the great expansions in US history were financed by national banks as well, such as Lincoln's development of the railroad system and FDR's New Deal. But being a Wall Street banker, I imagine you are as opposed to FDR as he was to your kind.

[-] 0 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

Sure, India and China are doing pretty well. But that does not mean they would continue to do so even in the future. And might I remind you, until recently US too was doing pretty darn well.

There are some who are quite actively pursuing WW3 right now, if you are not aware of it, look up "WW3 Iran" at google or youtube.

I don't see speculative finance as bringing immense prosperity to the majority of the American people these days. Furthermore, speculators should not be taking risks with other people's money, who have not authorized them to do so.

For the economy to recover fully, first we will need Glass Steagall, which would result in many Wall Street firms being declared bankrupt, then an economic development program, like the New Deal, and a science driver program, like JFK's space program.

Finance would go back to being the process of keeping track of money, rather than making money through speculation. Creativity would be devoted more to scientific and technical pursuits.

[-] 1 points by hymie (391) 2 years ago

The biggest threat to China is the collapse of the west, its main customer base, which it is trying to circumvent by developing it's internal market through infrastructure development. The other main threat to China is the possibility of a nuclear WW3, kicked off in Iran or Syria. And yes, the US was doing well until speculative finance took over our economy.

The benefits from the space program would be the scientific discoveries and new technologies that were developed, and spun off as new products by the private sector. I believe fiber optics would be one example among many. Another benefit would be the creation of an entirely new industry, the aerospace industry, which required high skilled workers and paid them a decent wage.

[-] 0 points by smartcapitalist (143) 2 years ago

Yes, that is one of them (though I dont think WW3 is happening any time soon). The other being a lack of democracy. As long as the govt can keep the middle class happy with good growth and jobs it is all fine, but if they ever enter a slow growth or recessionary phase, people will rise is revolt. That is their biggest worry.

As for speculative finance, well it needs to be that way. You need speculators and risk takers just as you need people who want to assume less risk or diversify out their risk. Finance has brought immense prosperity and innovation to the world. It is only recently that we got a bad name. But, for better or for worse, people have short memories, they will forget all this once the economy recovers fully.
