This is one of those sad consequenses of the current economic situation. Back in 29 it was noted that some on wall street jumped from their office windows after loosing everything. History seems to be repeating itself. A German billionaire investor has ended his life after loosing hundreds of millions by shorting Volkswagon stock.
Time to ban shorts and hedges?
What people don't seem to understand is that all of these doings are chipping away at the very foundation of our economic system. You might want to say "well that doesn't effect me", but it does. When Enron did their dirty deeds jobs were lost and retirements were wiped out. Imagine having retired and getting a monthly statement with no check in it.
