More nonsense from Washington and Wall Street!
Just thinking to myself…if Jon Corzine was anyone else, wouldn’t his passport be taken away? Wouldn’t the powers that be look at him with a jaundiced eye…especially after the Madoff incident? Just a question to ponder. The playing field remains uneven as I believe that if this wasn’t Corzine, that person would be locked away with the key thrown away.
For me, the most amazing part of this story is that this supposed genius of Wall Street, the ex-head honcho of Goldman Sachs…actually and simply repeated the mistakes that brought down so many houses in 2008. To keep leverage above 30-1 with some saying it was much higher…just flies in the face of logic. He says the leverage was there when he started. Let’s say that this was true. It still does not take away from his inaction.
Which leads me to the missing bucks. They know where the money is. I am an RIA. I know how the whole financial business works. There is a trail for everything. There is a trail coming in. There is a trail coming out. Something is not right with this picture and I am confident if the truth comes out, it will be shown that money was moved nefariously to benefit some in front of others.
Which leads me to the media. Why aren’t they and why didn’t they bark up a storm about a man who took over a company, a company that was in business for decades and killed it within a year’s time? I am just wondering if this man had an R in front of his name instead of a D…what would have happened?
I am in hopes the real truth comes out but after watching all the nonsense over the years between Washington and Wall Street, after watching the patty cake questions of the “Honorable” Corzine, I gather somehow this one will end quietly. Think Franklin Raines.
