Well at least he's honest. These are the "leaders" of our financial system.

Later in the article in the Financial Times he recommends that Georges Soros start a new form of government! lol! to create a new system of government to represent the common mans interests. He claims the system as it stands today is "clearly broken".

I read it. He is a narsisitic pot head. I am not pro drug war, but he does illustrate a lack of empathy that so many pot addicts have. To bad an anthropologist did not study these bankers and hedge fund managers.It is so refreshing to know he now will clean up his act and do the world good with all his ill gotten gain. Pride goeth before a fall.

The difference between decent human beings and criminal con artists are, the human beings achieve a lifelong dream of making a living either serving others, creativity and products or filling a space and providing something thats lacking. The point is they care about their customers, and know that if its not a win/win situation, they might as well be driving taxi. A psychotic con artist thinks of people as targets to rip off and fleece, and in his sick mind he projects the guilt onto his vicims, his customers, and blames them. One way people can make a difference is to boycott all big business and anyone that acts this way, and "as much as possible" only support local small businesses.
