Two big, macabre stories came out of Wall Street recently: the rash of banker deaths by apparent murder and/or suicide, and speculation that bank CEOs themselves are behind the trend to cash in on the insurance.
It turns out that banks take out life insurance policies on their employees, and those policies pay out death benefits to the banks – not the families. In other words, to add to the banks’ other crimes, they appear to also be involved in the “suicides” and deaths of their own, as a way to fatten their bottom line and bonuses.
Should we be surprised by this banker-on-banker death scam? After all, wasn’t this what 9/11 was all about?
For some, the 9/11 story has faded into history and they consider it not terribly interesting anymore, but I think it’s important to keep in mind the ruthlessness of bankers on Wall Street today who are now apparently killing each other for the insurance money and who, we can now say with some certainty, were trading options to cash in on their own deaths on 9/11.
This is the Wall Street culture that is tearing America apart. This is the Wall Street disease that is undermining America’s ability to control events around the world.
