41,991.  Nobody else counts except the Wall Street money masters.  That has made the United States no longer a force for progress but something very different – often a force for destruction in the world.  (Banksters & United States of America & Federal Reserve & Wall Street)  Webster Tarpley

 

 

41,992.  If you look also at the people that Obama has put on his appointments list: it’s all Wall Street.  It’s government of Wall Street by Wall Street and for Wall Street.  There’s nobody from heavy industry; there’s nobody from the auto sector; nobody from Silicon Valley, nobody from big oil, nobody from defense, no labour, no women, no retirees, no small business, nothing.  It’s pure Wall Street.  The only people that have a voice in Obamas councils are Wall Street finance oligarchs.  That’s all there is.  (Banksters & Federal Reserve & United States of America & Wall Street)  Webster Tarpley

 

 

41,989.  Left and right mean nothing.  The only thing that counts is – are you working for Wall Street or are you trying to defend the people against the financiers?  (Banksters & Finance & Federal Reserve & Wall Street)  Webster Tarpley, author, journalist and lecturer

 

 

36,584.  Occupy Wall Street means making Wall Street and the corporate power elite understand that the people affected by the binge of unregulated greed are not going away, and they are not going to give up.  (Elite & Greed & Stocks & Shares & Corporations & Wall Street)  Dana Spiotta

 

 

111,602.  In today’s world real power lies in the hands of an elite group of anonymous men in open-plan offices.  The men who control the world’s bond market … Bonds are the magical link between the world of high finance and the world of political power.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & Wall Street)  Niall Ferguson, The Ascent of Money e2: Human Bondage  

 

111,603.  After the rise of banks the birth of the bond market was the next big revolution in the history of finance.  It created a whole new way for governments to borrow money.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

111,604.  There are bonds out there worth around $85,000,000,000,000.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

111,605.  Between around 1810 and 1836 the five sons of Meyer Amschel Rothschild rose from the obscurity of the Frankfurt ghetto to attain a position of unequalled power in international finance.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & Banksters & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

111,606.  The South’s idea was to use cotton as calateral to back its bonds.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Risk & Stocks & South & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

 

111,608.  The next step in the story of the ascent of money was the rise of the joint-stock limited-liability company.  But the ability of the company to transform our lives would depend on another innovation – the stock market.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Company & Stocks & Wall Street)  Niall Ferguson, The Ascent of Money e3: Blowing Bubbles  

 

111,609.  Stock markets really can be like soap bubbles – we never quiet know when they’re going to burst.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Company & Stocks & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

111,630.  Ponzi scheme – after the legendary Italian-American con-man Charles Ponzi: to pay out the generous returns its promised to the first lot of suckers, a Ponzi scheme needed to take in more money from the next lot of suckers.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Ponzi & Company & Stocks & Wall Street)  ibid. 

 

111,631.  The Mississippi bubble of 1719 was the first stock market bubble in history.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Company & Stocks & Wall Street)  ibid.  

 

111,632.  Enron: It pioneered many of the dubious business practices that continue to plague us today.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Company & Stocks & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

 

42,226.  In our time we’ve witnessed the zenith of global finance.  In 2006 the world’s total economic output was worth around $47,000,000,000,000.  The total value of stock and bond markets was roughly $119,000,000,000,000.  More than twice the size.  And the amount outstanding of the strange new financial life-form known as derivatives was $473,000,000,000,000.  Ten times larger ... This is the story of financial globalisation.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  Professor Niall Ferguson, Ascent of Money: Chimerica 2010

 

42,227.  According to [George] Soros’s Theory of Reflexivity, financial markets can’t possibly be perfectly efficient much less rational ... His biggest coups came from being right about losers not winners.  And the greatest of these was among the most momentous speculative hits in all of financial history.  On September 16th 1992 with the British £ in big trouble I watched as Soros put out a contract on the Bank of England ... So sure was he that the £ would drop that he bet ten billion dollars.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

42,228.  The Nobel Prize in Economics.  It seemed as if Intellect had triumphed over Intuition.  As if rocket science had taken over from risk-taking.  Equipped with their magical black box, the partners in LTCM seemed poised to make money far beyond the wildest imaginings of even George Soros.  And then in the summer of 1998 when every self-respecting hedge-fund manager should have been playing with his yacht something happened that threatened to blow the lid right off the Nobel Prize winner’s black box: Reality started to misbehave ... On Monday August 17th 1998 a giant asteroid smashed into Planet Finance.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.  

 

41,510.  The only chance of survival was to find a White Knight to rescue them.  And the most powerful Knight in town was none other than George Soros.  It was the ultimate humiliation: the Quants from Planet Finance begging for a bail-out from the Prophet of Irrational Unquantifiable Reflexivity ... Fear that Long Terms failure could trigger a general financial meltdown, the New York Federal Reserve hastily brokered a multi-billion-dollar bailout by fourteen Wall Street banks.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

41,506.  The ascent of money has seldom been smooth.  Time and again it’s been punctuated by big painful crises.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

41,507.  American borrowers have come to rely on Chinese savers, a symbiotic relationship between China and America that I call Chimerica.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

36,116.  So enormous have Chinese saving become in recent years they’ve enabled globalisation to do the most almighty U-turn.  Previously, it was the rich English speakers who leant money to the poor Asian periphery.  But now it’s the Chinese who are lending money to the Americans.  Welcome to the strange new hybrid country of China and America – I call it Chimerica.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

41,508.  The People’s republic of China has become banker to the United States of America.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

42,229.  What starts with competition for Olympic medals could end in a battle over dollars if the Chinese decide one day to cut off their credit line to the American empire.  Maybe as it name suggests Chimerica is nothing more than a chimera ... The really big crises come just seldom enough to be beyond the living memory of the people who run today’s companies, banks and funds.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

41,509.  The Ascent of Money has been one of the key factors in human progress, an extraordinary story of innovation, intermediation and integration that has done as much as anything to help people escape from the drudgery of subsistence agriculture.  And yet Planet Finance can never quite escape from the gravitational force of Planet Earth.  Because the Quants can never take full account of the human factor – our tendency to underestimate the probability of black swans.  Our propensity to veer from euphoria to despondency.  Our chronic inability to learn from History.  (Business & Money & Finance & Economics & Stocks & Currency & Risk & Investment & Globalisation & Federal Reserve & Banksters & Borrow & Saving & Debt & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

 

41,511.  Too much cheap money sloshing round the world.  (Money & Wall Street)  Wall Street 1987 starring Michael Douglas & Charlie Sheen & Daryl Hannah & Martin Sheen & John C McGinley & Terence Stamp & James Karen & Hal Holbrook & Sean Young & James Spader et al, director Oliver Stone, opening scene

 

41,856.  I never knew how poor I was until I started making a little money.  (Money & Poor & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

41,857.  Money is one great pain in the ass if you ask me.  (Money & Wall Street)  ibid.  son to father

 

41,858.  The main thing about money, Bud: it makes you do things you don’t want to do.  (Money & Wall Street)  ibid.  father to son.

 

41,859.  How much is enough?  (Money & Wall Street)  ibid.

 

75,161.  We’re all just one trade away from humility.  (Company & Humility & Stocks & Wall Street)  ibid.
