“Goldman Sachs Rules the World,” Says Trader

The future of the global economy seems bleak with the Smart Money betting on complete collapse and cow-eyed diddly-winks like the stock trader in the video below announcing that governments are irrelevant as “Goldman Sachs rules the world.” (One wonders where they think their payoff is going to come from if the system falls apart as it did during the Great Depression and government doesn’t intervene to save the markets.) Maybe Goldman Sachs does rule, for now, but look at the protests on Wall Street and elsewhere — We The People are waking up to the grifters and sleaze merchants who have been ruining our futures and may very well put Big Money in its place before it can destroy what’s left of our democracy and freedom. As Franklin D. Roosevelt said in 1932, “Our Republican leaders tell us economic laws –- sacred, inviolable, unchangeable –- cause panics which no one could prevent. But while they prate of economic laws, men and women are starving. We must lay hold of the fact that economic laws are not made by nature. They are made by human beings.” And Goldman Sachs is just a legal abstraction protected by courts and police paid for by the taxpayers, as are the stock markets they trade in, and they’ve been horribly wrong before. There likely will be a collapse, but, for once, it may only affect the top ten percent while the rest of us get on with our lives.
