Casino Capitalism

Posted in links, politics by amoslanka on October 6, 2008

I was reading a post today on Eugene Cho’s blog about the bailout. I appreciate the thoughts expressed both by Eugene and his commenters over there. One comment in particular stood out to me, using the term

Wall Street Casino Capitalism

It has high roller/big spender/rich getting richer written all over it. 

I love Eugene’s blog, please check him out. In particular, check out the ridiculous video by a pre-madonna Bank of America exec.

Oh, one more thing, here’s a breakdown of the bailout. Leaves me speechless.

Find the chart here.

    my mind can’t even comprehend all that money ugh…. and where it all went… it’s not just like “ooops i accidentally washed a $1 in the pocket of my jeans” either…. and of course noooo, not like we could use that money towards something like world hunger per say.. which probably wouldn’t even cost this much… this a ridiculous amount to bail out our sorry butts…..
    anyways :) haha
