    Make it absinthe. Closer to the taste of false dreams.

    Greed is alive and well Just take a look at Wall Street

    So, back then Milo gave Binkley, what? About 75 cents?
    Better than giving him “his 2 cents” I guess.

    The Yuppies of the 80’s are the same dipsticks that drove the S&L debacle in the 90’s and the housing market off a cliff in ’08, I dread to think what hairbrain moneymaking scheme they will come up with this decade.

    " Trading Carbon Credits maybe…"

    Bitcoins fer sure, maybe some carbon credits, probably more real estate, I know lots of people in derivatives, way beyond options, and even farther out than futures. Retail investors are getting into derivatives more dangerous than futures contracts where you can lose more than 1000 times your initial investment! G
    Some genius thought that up. Used to be you could only get surprised to lose up to 30 times your investment, but self-regulators moved in.

    If someone mentions structured derivatives to you, have them evaluated for mental competence, and run far, far away.

    Oh, and small local banks are probably a real hazard. I’ve been in real estate, I’ve been in financial regulation, and I’ve been in Economics.

    What I am seeing a lot of, is the trusted local bankers that screwed up their banks so badly they had to be acqired by another bank, opening new banks in their area. I’m talking about banks that were acquired before they were forced to by the Fed, so they never made the papers. Except when they could buy an ad or fool the media into saying this bank is so well run Gigantor Bank wanted them. That troubled bank list doesn’t nearly list 10 percent of the truly bad banks.

    I personally know one family of serial bank robbers, teaching relatives how to run banks into the ground and rob them from the inside, and walk away clean. Well, one was going to be prosecuted, but the main witness went deep sea fishing, and committed suicide by shooting himself twice in the back of the head. All the local LEO said, “well, musta been a drug criminal”, and actively blocked investigators.
