It’s all Ayn Rand’s fault
When the globe was engulfed in the flood of defaults and derivative losses that emerged from the collapse of the US housing bubble two years ago, few understood that the crash had its roots in the lunatic greed-centred objectivist religion, fostered in the ’50s and ’60s by ponderous emigre novelist Ayn Rand.
Rand’s fingerprints are all over the Goldman story. The case involves a hedge fund financier, John Paulson, who went to Goldman with the idea of a synthetic derivative package pegged to risky US mortgages, for use in betting against the mortgage market. Paulson would short the package and Goldman would then sell the deal to suckers. The SEC’s contention is that Goldman committed a crime when they failed to tell the suckers about the vulture betting against them on the other side of the deal.
It’s from some left wing Australian paper. Take it for what it’s worth.
While we are at it more claims that Revolution Muslim is a CIA front.
