Worth a watch :) Fella rants the truth about current affairs
show user profile  Mashedpot8er
First of all, my apologies for bringing politics into our nice community, but felt that this should be shared, all over.

I'm not a particularly political person, but this fella seems to be saying what I'm feeling to a degree. I'm in the UK, but I think his point is globally valid. Most countries seem to be having the money internationally sucked out of them at the moment.

Private Businesses seem to be extracting more than their fair share from the world. Sorry again for inviting this subject matter in, at least its just one thread amongst all the proper stuff. :)

Please, do watch it, thanks :)

There`s definitely an increasing awareness of the idea that the establishment, is taking us for a ride economically.

Like yourself i live in the UK. Have recently read in a newspaper of a London banker openly saying that in banking/financial circles they HOPE for another recession, they actually look forward to it - because a LOT of profit comes out of it. Another banker is quoted as having said his only surprise at that comment was that the guy actually voiced it, as it is a generally accepted but unspoken truth.

There are too many things to mention on the whole issue, suffice to say that i`d like the current trend of awareness of the problem to continue to grow.

The guy's name is Dylan Ratigan, and apparently he has a show on MSNBC. I'd never heard of him before this rant became such big news. Here's the original:

I lost a lot of respect for him when I watched this vid, though.

It couldn't be more obvious he's not paying any attention, and you'll sprain something if you try to follow his train of thought as he's asking Dr. Horner questions. And the questions he asks, ugh.

not just him. others can see there is a problem.

following the banking collapse in 2008 legal action has not been taken to prosecute those who acted fraudulently. it's complex so maybe there's a reason why - there is some civil action in motion in the states (not sure of progress). if the us financial sector is not seen as being robust and reliable, the rest of the world loses confidence. on top of the money we've all lost through our banks buying fraudulent derivatives traded on wall street.

second half of the most recent keiser show explains the problem :

yeah finance is dull but that sector has to function properly to keep everything else running properly.

maybe limit us election campaign funding to limit the influence of financing lobbyists.

in the uk we should seperate retail & investment banks with immediate effect to prevent fraudulent trading further damamging our econimy. our gov is planning on enforcing this but until it's done our banks are exposed & if they screw up may need another bail out. paid for by the taxpayer.

basically we have a casino banking configuration at the moment where banks aren't a place that looks after your money they're a place you take your money to then they gamble with it. if (when) they screw up they go to the gov for a bailout, damaging the economy. it's like a person with a gambling problem turning up reguarly with a sob story asking you to help out. when you do, they blow it again. just say no. mmmkay ?
