    “Individuals who fraudulently manipulate markets and commit financial crime should be treated like the criminals they are.”

    These guys wash more money than the Chinese laundry wash clothes near my house.

    This is the biggest corruption the world has ever seen. How many lives have been lost by corruption of these men and countries that proclaim themselves civilized?

    And who created the “culture of impunity”, sir??

    Who tolerated it?


    And that's why you don't see ONE ANGLO in this thread. They all scurried to take cover, no balls to face the unflattering truth about modern Capitalism, particularly in Anglo-saxon cultures.
