Why is it so hard for the banks to understand their place?
Heres a little note I want to offer up to the banking groups and cartels involved with this crap:
Dear banking figures, CEO's, trade floor level operators, and the owners of HVT (High Volume Trading) apparatus,
Your job, you may have been told when you started, is to make money. That is what some airheaded psychopath told you, when you arrived for your first
day, before they wandered off to find some tail or whatever. You wanted to be that guy, because he was taking a long lunch to get laid, and maybe
drive somewhere nice for lunch in a car you would have to mortgage your organs to afford. In short, you wanted to be that person so much, that you
believed his waffle.
Let me re-educate you (not that it ought to be necessary, since many of you have degrees. This is perhaps evidence that education is no replacement
for common sense).
Your job, is to look after peoples money. It is not to make money. Your job is to make peoples money more secure, by trading sensibly, investing
wisely, and keeping your clients money out of the toxic asset market. In a wider sense, your job is also to make the markets you operate in stable, by
successfully doing this. That in turn makes it easier for people to free up their cash to invest, and means that you as traders and investment
bankers, will, despite being sensible and not BLOODY INSANE, have more money in your porfolio to manage, which makes you look good to your boss, to
your client, and to potential investors who have not yet taken the plunge.
When you fail to do your jobs correctly, people you have a responsibility toward will lose their livelihoods, their jobs, their cars, their homes.
Your country will lose power in the world, and indeed the effects of your utter incompetence and lack of understanding of your place in the world,
will have ripples that extend far beyond the shores of whatever land you may live in. It is not your job to make billions of dollars, for ANYONE, not
you, not your boss, not your client, not anyone. That is the job of good companies which actually MAKE things that people buy, not for some stuffed up
suit with delusions of self importance to acheive. Leave making the money to your clients, to companies which actually make things.
And while we are on the subject, you sniveling worms who make "financial products". None of you should be employed, your positions are entirely
created to make money from nothing. You are a disgrace to every hard working person in your country, you awful, awful people. You make everyone who
knows what you do, outside the circles in which you work, SICK! It is not that we envy you, it is that we cannot understand how anyone would have the
bear faced cheek to make money by scamming people, which is what you help to do. I hope that the next contact you have with currency, is by someone
knocking you out, and shoving a ten thousand pound/dollar roll of bills down your throat.
Open letter ends.
I am constantly dismayed by the fact that the banking industry cannot grasp the simple premise of stabilising markets, rather than allowing them to
collapse. Let us be frank, unless the banks want to be regulated to the point of immobility, they MUST make every effort to re-imagine themselves as
organisations, and act for the good of entire markets, as well as the people who invest in them, with their own profits as a lightyears distant third
This is not a choice that they ought to be offered, but an ultimatum. Behave with good sense, or your company will be liquidated. That might just get
the result that the people of the world deserve, for allowing these terrible people to continue to earn money for nothing.
