Wall Street wizards may soon be plying their trade on the James Bond market.
The CIA is looking to hire the same investment bankers and financial gurus that many hold responsible for sinking the economy to help President Obama pick up the pieces -- and also catch a few millionaire terrorists.
The spy agency started advertising the jobs on Bloomberg Radio, hoping to recruit investment bankers, top analysts and hedge fund honchos to use their "intelligence for the work of a nation."

Well there are so many ways to avoid taxes that its obvious that the administration has resorted to bring in the big boys. As many past investigations provided less than usable information it was then considered that perhaps it should be handled by a larger more aggressive alpha agency.
Such trading on inside information is illegal, and when it involves highly classified details about a future CIA coup, it verges on treason. Yet the researchers found that prices of companies affected by the CIA’s regime-toppling efforts—UFC in Guatemala, Anglo-Iranian (oil) in Iran, Anaconda (mining) in Chile, and American Sugar in Cuba—went up in the weeks and months preceding the coups. (The authors restrict their analysis to coups for which they had access to declassified planning documents and for which U.S. companies had had property nationalized by the targeted regimes.)
