Big banks and the Fed run the entire ponzi scheme. The lowly 401k investor trying to save for retirement as his portfolio is secretly sucked dry by Goldmans “Rapid Trading” supercomputer running algoritms executing trades miliseconds before anyone else in the market. Then meeting with Geithner plotting the next super bubble. The world market is an illusion a giant ponzi scheme run by a handful of connected ridiculously wealthy bubble boys. Forget about sustainalbe growth with these dinks running the show. The true bubble manipulators have a strong hold George Washington couldnt sever. Plan on inflation, job loss and market manipulation on a scale you cant fathom thats reality. “Free markets” what a joke. I called Geithner today and I couldnt even get his secretary hmm he must have been on the line with Government Sachs plotting their next move. These people should be in jail not manipulating world markets. How many Yachts do you really need? To big to fail…. too well connected to be allowed to fail. Once again the tax payer gets bent over. Its one year later who has been sentenced and sent to jail because of the rampant corruption on wall street and the sub prime market. … Answer no one. Why?

Amid last fall’s crisis, closed door communication was understandable.

We are now in a world where the government’s actions more than anything else determine inflation or deflation and returns across all manner of asset classes. Thus Llyod Blankfein and the others have been dealing in insider information, day in and day out for all these months.

Lloyd Blankfein belongs in prison for insider trading for at least that reason.
