Money does not buy class or manners. I hope he never get sick and has to be treated by any of those doctors! He may come out with a ball or two missing.

Here is a cooking recipe:
Take a 25 year old
Add MBA
Put him on a trading desk
add Huge Salary
End of year bonus unmatched to any contribution to society
cook on low institutional heat for 3 years
and what do you get? Jerk Souffle

This is just a joke. I have many good friends on the institutional trading desks and they are decent guys.
But, there are those who display this bad behavior as well.

Sadly, the kid in this picture was only fired because he was caught on cam. He probably works across the street now.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

Oh dear.... one of my old employers in the news again..... (I don't know this guy though)

This is a very common taunt I first saw from Traders & Brokers back in the demonstrations (riots!) starting in the late 90s . The year the demonstrators "stormed" (the foyer at least) of the LIFFE Exchange

Cheers

A comedian called Harry Enfield started this back in the eighties (happy days) by creating a character called "loadsa Money" with a catch phase of "shut your mouth and look at my wad". Of course you need to say it in a cockney accent. YouTube - Harry Enfield - Loadsamoney - I've Got Piles
Football fans were always holding up 10 and 20 pound notes when they went on trips up to the then depressed north.

OK, maybe what this chap did was not great. But really, the whole world nowadays seem to want to be offended by something, everyone seems to love a bit of righteous indignation. I think you will find it was a trade union march with all sorts of occupations and students represented. But of course the press say he mocked Doctors and Nurses. I'm only suprised they did not say disabled orhans as well.

this link is quite amusing.

Actually all of this reminds me of Leeson, who brought down Barings in mid 90s by aggressive buying into falling Nikkei to cover a relatively small error, losing $1.4 billion in the process.

The karma of his efforts was prison, divorce, and cancer. Very educational.

An interesting viewpoint Anagami. Comparing a 1.4 billion pound loss to a boy holding up a £10 note. Personally I fail miserably to see the similarity there. Furthermore are you hoping that A: He goes to prison B: Fails to find love. C: Suffers from Cancer or D: All three. If you believe that any of those things are Karma for this young man then I only hope that you have never done anything mildly wrong yourself.

On the other hand if you just enjoy making outlandish comments to obtain a response, then congratulations, this was a good effort. Maybe you could seek employment as a "Shock Jock" on the radio, you appear to be a natural.

Best wishes

I guess you did fail miserably after all to get the point... which likely says much more about you than the thread.
