As you may know, I am no financial expert. I do however believe that the media is owned by corporations (not really a belief) and therefore “they” can restrict information in anyway they deem fit. Armed with that belief and a healthy mistrust of the system in general, I tend to keep a partial eye on obscure newsy things that some would consider random,,, especially when it comes to the “powers that be”, their henchmen and the big money that makes it all go…
The article I have attached to this commentary has strangely not made its way onto the mainstream media as of yet (try to Google search it on your own – it’s out there but buried)… The curious omission of this fascinating phenomenon causes my head to tilt to one side and wonder “why?” Why, in our culture of “death & money worship” would serial suicide (4 in about a week) of high profile bankers go relatively unnoticed or unreported? Why would these very successful people just after the holidays and bonus season, basking in first quarter record profits put an end their own existence? Why???
For some of us this would be news to celebrate! Poor little rich men (Boo-Hoo) life must be hard producing nothing and gaining everything… I personally shed no tears for the perceived hardship of the privileged BUT I have to ask… What did they see? Was it financial in nature? What could have been so bad? Did they know something collectively that would justify such a reaction?
I don’t know how many of you have ever truly been suicidal but typically when it is “real” there is no tomorrow worth having. The here and now is only a reflection of failures, there is an intense sorrow, a feeling of revenge and an overwhelming need to be heard… My suspicion asks “Suicide or Murder?” And what does any of it imply?
It is being reported that the stresses of the profession is likely at the heart of the suicides… At the moment I have no choice but to prescribe to that deduction as well. I have no evidence to the contrary but I can’t help but consider that there may be something financially dark on the way? Something worth running from, something that is hard to live with – something that maybe hard for all of us to live with… When one banker commits suicide on any given day, I (like most of you) would say “it is sad, no biggie it happens”. But when 4 mega successful, power brokering, leaders of analysis do it within 1 week – I say Hmmmm? What’s going on around here?
