I have an exercise for all of you who think their is some form of epidemic.
Open up the browser of your choice.
Type in Google.com
In the search bar type "Banker Suicides"
Read search results, get panicked!
now, repeat the process, but in the search bar type "Banker Suicides 2013"
Then "Banker Suicides 2012"
Then "Banker Suicides 2011"
Rinse and Repeat until you get the point.
Bankers Kill themselves, it makes sense. They play with LARGE amount of money, and commit criminal acts they can't stand up to. It happens. Bankers off themselves.

Relax and realize, it's just normal.

Why are you so concerned that other people think there is a conspiracy about bankers killing themselves?
Is there something you are not telling us?

Do you work for a bank?

I don't think you just say Google it and there is no mystery. There simply isn't enough information across the industrialised world to make ANY coherent judgement. Some more reading here,

I wouldn't call this a conspiracy site, I was under the impression this was a website to look for the truth behind stories and debating the questionable.

This is from a news article from 2009 about suicide rates and the correlation between the decrease in Gross Domestic Product and bankers offing themselves. It's interesting what he say's about the time lag of suicide rates. It seems they increase years after a collapse instead of being an immediate thing.


When it comes to suicide statistics for the general population, the picture is clearer, if less cheery. The rise and fall of the Dow isn’t the key factor here; the health of the overall economy is. “We’ve been studying suicide cycles for over a century, and there is a nearly linear relationship between the national suicide rate and GDP,” says Dr. M. Harvey Brenner, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. The overall cycle of suicides, he says, “mirrors the economy.” It does so, it bears noting, with a time lag. While there was no nationwide rash of suicides in 1929, rates peaked in 1932, by the time the Great Depression had set in. Just as the crisis itself takes a while to spread through the system, so does individual misery.

I wish there was a way to tell other members how I felt about a particular topic without creating a separate forum.
Oh wait, there is.
Stop wasting time, and creating threads that offer no value.

Next time, reply to the thread, and say you disagree. That's all there is to it.

Completely flawed logic.
You 'common sense' your way to suicide.
I rise above your initial verdict, and say... Why aren't bankers murdered in their droves EVERY year?...
For knowing too much, perhaps, and not towing the line? Or just by being realised to be the wrong types?
Or even, for being found out to be in an opposing religion? Or even a different masonic illuminati sect?

I remain, unlike you, agnostic...

Very good and obvious point. Why do people join ATS and then complain about people who offer their conspiracy related finds?
Im glad that the topic was started, he put it in Rant, I think it could easily have gone in the appropriate forum as the information itself does bring an important issue to the table.

however , i still don't agree that the information leads to a definite suicide verdict.

Maybe not in the classical sense but conspiracy theory is a part of the discussion boards. Ipso facto a conspiracy site.

Why are you using my answer as an example of complaining? It was not intended as a complaint in an way shape or form.
Maybe you missed my second post:

No, I didn't say you had complained, just that I agree its annoying when people do, which in fairness happens all day long here at ATS, unfortunately I wasn't paying full attention and i hadnt realised that the comment was directed at you, and if you look I actually concurred with you and said I don't see it as proof of anything,rather just more information to ponder on the subject... I actually starred your posts. Sorry if I led to confusion.

The banks have already caused quite a lot of trouble with the GFC and being too big to fail. Shinning some public scrutiny into some significant events can help in gauging just how far into the dark side the banks are continuing to play in as this is one industry usually covered in a lot of secrecy and privacy. Some suicides are to be expected as this does affect all sectors of society. If there should happen to be some murders being written off as suicides then it does indicate the rules are still quite hard with regulatory integrity requiring more effort.

Did you check to see if the previous years the deaths were close in time or related by what the bankers did or who they worked for? This time there are many weird ties.




12 deaths in 8 months
