Good Find dude!! No...A Great Find dude. Everyone should see and hear this.
The only people who make money in the Stock Market are the ones with inside information. I got out back in Nov 2007... rolled my 401k into a simple cd.
I don't have much, so I need every cent.
If you take any kind of risk with your money for a higher return...it's greed.
Keep it Simple and keep it Safe.

But, as always...that just like my opinion dudes. 8)

For sure, M5, great find, dude!

Love his comment on "governments don't rule the world, Goldman Sachs does." Governments have been fooling the public for centuries into believing that they are in charge, nothing could be further from the truth.

The money trust runs this planet, and has been doing so without virtually anyone in the general public knowing it. Their motto could easily be "keep em' in the dark and feed em' bullshit."

If you want to know who really rules this planet, don't waste your time reading bullshit conspiracy idiocy, read the facts from an insider who knows exactly what he is talking about.................

"Tragedy and Hope; A History of the World in Our Time." By money trust insider and highly celebrated academician, Professor Carroll Quigley.

Thanks for nailing this for me - I've heard quotes from his writings, but could never pin down who it was.  Thanks DB - that'll be some good reading.

Excellent source DB thanks for that.

My question now is (having slept on this). Is this guy actually real or is he a plant set up to further turn public attitude against the traders and bankers.

Or am I being extraordinarily over paranoid?

You're welcome, H dude!

It's one hell of a great read, Homind, and a real eye opener! And what's even better is that Quigley was not some nut case weird conspiracy buff, he was a highly respected University professor. This dude was no light weight!

You're welcome, M dude!

His reputation goes back years, M5, as a scholar, historian, respected thinker and more or less an insider to the powers that be. I'd say that this dude is definitely for real.

Sorry misunderstanding there I was talking about the link I posted.

All of a sudden there is this "bogeyman" of a trader all over the interwebs.

Yur welcome, Andrea! I read it through a few years ago, was a fascinating read. Should be required reading in any high school or college history course.

Oops, sorry, thought you were talking about Quigley. Yeah, good point, he does sounds credible to some degree (to me at least), mostly because he also sounds like he is being open about his feelings and saying things Wall Street would rather he didn't say. :o

There is something deeply dude about that, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Will have to meditate on that concept.  ;D
