Mr Rastani was a little more forthcoming.
"They approached me," he told The Telegraph. "I'm an attention seeker. That is the main reason I speak. That is the reason I agreed to go on the BBC. Trading is a like a hobby. It is not a business. I am a talker. I talk a lot. I love the whole idea of public speaking."


he talks he talks he talks, yes but the peoples in the world suffer because they play with $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for greed and profit ......
let him talk in prison, such kind of people are playing with our children !!! they are PEDOS !!!
raping the futur life of our children !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! shame shame shame !!!

And finally a USEFUL reply emerges, thank you sir.

Profiting from this crisis is the same as doing an armed robbery with only difference being the fact that armed robberies are illegal.

There are lots of ways to make money, it just depends how far one is willing to go.

This only confirms my ideas of how world is today..Sick actually. As northern european havent ever seen such a rude and corrupted cheat as this new 'financial crisis' has been to us - us everyone in this world. We are now giving taxpayers money directly to greed and unbelieveble shameless bussinesmen and bankers and even smiling while giving because every damn lying politics (=read errand boys) are telling us how world is going to end so soon if we werent doing so, well actually some politics are wakening but just because of voters. Cant tell you how this all makes me feel sick. World and we people, all of us, need just to wake up and stand against these greed bastards.

Is the trader from hell actually a hoax?

Well I submit he is no more of a hoax than our lying grubby politicians from all sides of politics, no more of a hoax than our greedy bankers or no more of a hoax than any other scumbag seeking to make profit on the misery of others.

Educate yourself. Independent traders like this are not causing any suffering.

Or would you rather no one traded the markets (resulting in illiquid markets, the costs of which are passed onto the consumer)?

This man just merely the obvious - that there is money to be made regardless of the direction of the markets.

Just to be clear, he was just using Goldman Sachs as an example. His point was still explosive though - let me write up what he actually said:

"What I would say to everybody is, get prepared. This is not a time right now to wishful think the government is going to sort this out. The governments don't rule the world. Goldman Sachs rules the world. Goldman Sachs does not care about this rescue package, neither does the big funds."

He was using Goldman Sachs as an example for all the big leagues money movers of the world. That includes GS but they're just one among hundreds. His point is that these same entities are the real powers in our world. By controlling the currency markets they control nations.

It has made front page news on Yahoo.

Was the BBC victim of a hoax? No, say the Yes Men


"Governments don't rule the world, Goldman Sachs rules the world."

That's what a purported London-based independent trader named Alessio Rastani told the BBC on Monday in a jaw-dropping interview that quickly went viral.

But just as quickly, rumors swirled that Rastani was actually a member of the Yes Men, a loose-knit group of merry pranksters and imposters that attempt to manipulate the media with the goal of exposing the dubious conduct of big corporations.

This is why I thank god that health care is a great field to work, I don't have to worry about a job AND I can trade my skills.

On a side note, it's always fun watching everything/one go to hell in a handbasket, yes I'm included with it all, but it truly is a once in a lifetime event and I can't do anything to stop it.....

I am a stock trader and I am shocked that saw someone on TV actually spill the beans. I too salivate when the stock market crashes and yes Goldman Sachs runs our entire worlds financial system and that is no lie. I am just surprised I actually saw someone on TV spill the beans as pundits on TV are stock pumpers. People on TV are paid to advertise stocks to everyone so they will buy them. If you all are interested in knowing how it all works i wouldn't mind posting in great detail how the markets function. YOU WILL BE SURPRISED!

Alessio is simply saying it how it is. Not only does he use Goldman Sachs as an example he's also mentioning that HEY! look at history this has happened before, and if we get there it will happen again. He's just well versed in how money has always worked (the only reason it exists really...)

The Trader was frank -- or should we say "Traitor"?

The Cancer that has metastasized here; is that we've institutionalized ways to make money by profiting from a collapse.

Churning stocks, shorting Greek currency, and "option Puts" when you think a country is going to get attacked.

Stocks were originally for investing in companies you thought were going to prosper -- and this money would be used to make capital improvements. Likewise; Futures markets were designed so that Farmers could be able to plan their costs, and be able to survive downturns -- instead, what we have now is giant corporate farms, fear-selling hedge funds, and governments who end up stockpiling grains and CREATING the hoarding situations that drive up prices and starvation. Oil companies use Futures contracts by third parties to drive up the price of fuel.

This guy is going to be making bank while Rome burns.

Making money selling weapons, creating scarcity, and shorting companies so that they can collapse (Bear Sterns comes to mind) are not good for the long run of our society, much less survival.

But we have a whole industry built on this. We've got Health Insurance which thrives on depriving people of care. We have drug companies that make more money if more people are sick and never get FULLY well, and we've got the largest prison population while the Privatized Prison systems lobby for harsher sentencing.


>> I know on the face of it, we should be dispassionate about "making a living" -- but at some point, anywhere you ALLOW a profit from misery, is a guarantee that there will be more misery.

I think that its important that people listen to him and understand what he is saying ONLY in that it will help them to put an end to this system.

YES our economic system is doomed to crash and burn after bubbles -- it is a debt-based system and the FED and banking are engineered to suck in money (hence the built in 3% inflation rate - which is REALLY because we pay the Fed to sit back and have guaranteed money control in return for dumping the risk on the taxpayer).

And YES, if you want one principle, that is running the world -- it's probably Goldman Sachs -- or whoever controls Goldman Sachs, likely through a blind trust or holding company working their will through the shadows.

But "the way the world works" is no excuse -- we need to end this systemic barbarism the same way as "Massacres" became "old fashioned" to modern sensibilities. The way the world currently works really sucks - -and we can do better.

I don't think ANYTHING is official until AFTER the MSM denies it.

The YES MEN are awesome.

>> And this "prank" is effective because it is actually how these traders think. It is damaging because it is true.
The YES MEN are certainly a vital national asset.

... so like Bradley Manning, I figure one day they will be naked in a cell on "suspicion of a pending accusation charges" that never get filed.

... Yeah, the "rescue package" doesn't really put money towards Public Works projects -- its a relabeling of Tax Breaks.

The Republicans and Democrats will argue over this nonsense bill as if it matters -- because their sponsors cannot RAISE taxes on top corporations even though they know it is necessary.


Our government cannot stop BP from destroying the Gulf -- if it has ANY CONTROL over corporations, BP would have been sold off to pay for the damage.

The US cannot sign the Kyoto protocol -- they cannot stop polluting, even thought it MAY BE NECESSARY to prevent widespread ecological catastrophe.


>> Corporate control has gone Viral -- meaning, it cannot control its own consumption or the destruction of its host. People need to prepare because the Justice System, the Armed Forces, and the entities that SHOULD protect us, are compromised by corporate hacks. The CIA is merely a taxpayer funded hitman for multinational corporations -- regardless if a few well-meaning people still think it works for Uncle Sam.

When Sibel Edmonds blew the whistle -- she got shut up by the FBI because so many of the people at the top are on the take. She said Dennis Hastert was getting paid by the Government of Turkey -- and when he retired, he ended up being a consultant for the Government of Turkey.

>> The TRULY SCARY THING is -- I think -- not that it's one shadow conspiracy like the Illuminati -- but that it's just "corruption" itself, that it's all these people on the take who sold out just a little bit, and that they cannot bring transparency or justice into the system because if there were no cockroaches -- there would be no occupants.

Things are falling apart because the honest people got filtered out of the system. Seriously, the agency that oversees financial services in this country FINRA -- is a joint venture with the former oversight agency and Wall Street itself. That's not going to work out well...

Sounds like the Yes-Men but it wasn't a hoax;
LINK



"We've never heard of Rastani," the group said in a statement of its own. "He isn't a Yes Man. He's a real trader who is, for one reason or another, being more honest than usual."


The Yes-Men take credit for what they do after they do it... so I believe them.

>> It seems like it's a set-up, because it is a bit surreal - that someone can sit there and talk with the "opportunity of a collapse" -- but that is indicative of the well paid corporate Psycopathology we've allowed to run our system.

Look up "Ponerology" as a reference.


This interview NEEDS to be viral -- it needs to be watched. It doesn't matter if it was a scam or not -- because it rings very true regardless.

It reminds me of the secret recording of ENRON executives cracking jokes about kicking grandma out of her house based on air conditioning bills. It's that moment when the lies and excuses for a system that is so one-sided finally makes people take notice and say; "enough."

College Students shouldn't go bankrupt trying to get educated to be productive workers. Sick parents shouldn't bankrupt their children with medical bills. A few "lucky people" shouldn't have the RIGHT to enjoy another mansion before the bills are paid. Nobody should profit from war -- nobody. Just because we've made it legal, doesn't mean that we should have or are absolved from guilt by allowing it.

Didn't he also say that in a year, all savings you have in the bank will be worthless???? Use your savings to invest in treasury bonds etc.....So, does that mean any money you have in the bank, will be eaten up by the banking system as it crashes and they all go into liquidation? I have also noticed that my bank account is being used through the night. To explain, At about 10pm, my balance as it should be. But I did a test overnight and kept checking. At 1am, the whole balance went 'missing' until 8am the next morning. I did this as direct debits kept being sent back to the issuer saying I did not have enough funds in my bank to take the direct debit out, which is invariably through the night. I now know why my direct debits are being rejected and I have the bank looking into it. It does not show up on your online statement that this is happening overnight. Everything looks as it should....Check yourself and see if you are having this happen to your bank account? Why is it being done, any answers.....?
