While watching this, Bitcoin being a valuable and reliable commodity kept swirling around in my head

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aC19fEqR5bA&feature=player_embedded

Quote
In an interview on BBC News this morning that left the hosts gob-smacked (google it... it is the BBC after all), Alessio Rastani outlines in a mere three-and-a-half-minutes what we all know and most ignore. While the whole interview is worth watching, the money shot for us was "This economic crisis is like a cancer, if you just wait and wait hoping it is going to go away, just like a cancer it is going to grow and it will be too late!". While he dreams of recessions, sees Goldman ruling the world, and urges people to prepare, it is hard to disagree with much (or actually anything) of what he says and obviously interventions and machinations means we will have days like this (in Silver for instance), there is only one endgame here and we hope there is less hopeful euphoria (and more preparedness) as we pull back the curtain further an further.

While we do not know who this trader is, one thing we can be 100% certain of is that he will never appear on CNBC.

You can make lots of money in a down market.  The trick is to short things then go on TV and say everythings about to crash.

The hosts, much less the BBC, didn't seem terribly gob-smacked or speechless at all. In fact, they even cracked a joke at the end of the segment. Interviewers in general are pretty good at swapping their facial expressions to how they should be feeling, it's their job to make the news seem interesting. The media has never been known for under-reporting doom and gloom. For future reference, here's what someone with years of experience in acting looks like when they're truly speechless:

I bet you that is exactly what he did.  As they say on Eve Online, Trust No One.

Their jaws didn't drop at his prediction, but at his callousness.  His advice was on a par with "Let them eat cake."

"Goldman Sachs rules the world."  Jesus Fucking Christ.

This guy is just there to promote treasuries so they can pump the USD one last time.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

He might have positions there and thats why he recommends it, but short term is a good advice. Long term is crazy though.

Wow!

If that guy loves downward markets, someone should tell him about Bitcoin!  He'd have a ball!  Grin

I would suggest checking out two ETFs in the US trading markets, FAS and FAZ. These would be enough for an agile trader to make 100X if the market crashes.

Looking to review Bitcoin / Crypto mining Hardware.

"Goldman Sachs rules the world."  Jesus Fucking Christ.

This^
Although it's probably not 'surprise' at his callousness - just that he'd be so open about it.

I suspect banks and trading floors are a natural pooling point for sociopaths... and every now and then one forgets to hide it when talking to the outside world.

If it's not so much "forgetting" as "can't be bothered hiding it" - then it seems to me a pretty good sign that Goldman Sachs and their ilk really are just about ruling the world at this point.  

If anything is going to make the average joe genuinely angry enough to turn up to a more serious #occupywallst type situation - it's recession plus guys talking like this.

Yeah, the financial industry has economic political discourse so tightly sewn up at this point that there probably won't be any sane policy decisions until there have been a few threatening food and housing riots.  Just like in the Great Depression.

After watching the video with audio last night it seemed like he was just trying to manipulate the market.  Something about his nose just says untrustworthy.

I watched that dude and found it disturbing.  This kind of person does not seem to make decisions based on any kind of morality, but simply on what makes the most money, as if he worships it.  He says Goldman Sachs rules the world, and if he'd the chance he would have added that he would gladly work for Goldman if he could. 

But could I do that?  Could I make phone calls to county administrators down in Alabama to convince them to invest in my derivatives that I know are going to blow up?  I would make a lot of money after all.  I decided somewhere in my life that, no, I can not do that sort of thing, and I think we should all look in the mirror and decide what kind of person we are.

The most galling part about it is that Goldman Sachs was instrumental in engineering the Greek debt crisis in the first place.
