Ironic Quote of the Month

All Posts 2 Comments

On CNBC’s main page:

“I’m convinced the markets are really out of control,” German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told the FT. “That is why we need really effective regulation, in the sense of creating a properly functioning market mechanism.”

Tell me about it! The German government bans naked short-selling, and then the idiotic markets start tanking all over the place. Reminds me of the time the US government tried to rein in drug use, and then those chaotic gangsters started killing everybody. MAN freedom is so overrated.
