    Environmentalists thought they had found a “market solution” to controlling carbon emissions. Then energy traders have to go screw it all up.

    Bonus Watch ’10: Deutsche Bank

    You People Voted For Hubert Humphrey. And You Killed Jesus.

    How very quaint that this surprises you.Well, we know Lloyd and his tribe didn’t kill Jesus. The Romans did. Plus, even if, millennia ago, Blankfein’s forebears had a little hand in getting rid of a certain troublemaker, that would put a big dent in said troublemaker’s claims of divine origin, if you know what we […]

Certainly, with the news that the spying scandal brewing at Deutsche Bank is wider than initially realized, it becomes more and more obvious that global financial institutions […]

    I Have Been Waiting For The Perfect Time To Wheel The Dry Bar Back Onto The Trading Floor, And This Is It!

    “Alcohol brings everyone together.” Absolutely goddamn right. I’ve been saying for months the the answer to this liquidity shortage is more liquid courage. No, it wasn’t the repeal of Glass-Steagall that slowly ate away at the market, it was the partial revival of the Volstead Act in the hallowed halls of our investment banks. The […]

    I’ve finally reached my breaking point with the Germans. Other transgressions could be chalked up to a quirky sense of humor befitting a nation obsessed with David Hasselhoff, but this latest one goes beyond “slightly off color,” and Heidi Fleiss Eichman, it just goes too damn far.
