A Trader Surprises The BBC By Being Honest About The Financial Markets: “I Go To Bed Every Night – I Dream Of Another Recession”

In September 2011, an independent trader by the name of Alessio Rastani was interviewed by the BBC and asked to discuss the state of the world’s financial markets, notably the stock market, the governmental eurozone rescue plan, and the lack of institutional investment. Surprising to the BBC’s anchorwoman was the candour shown by Rastani in describing his lack of sympathy (and that of fellow traders) towards the state of the economy, and how his biggest priority is simply that of making money in seemingly unmerciful, dog-eat-dog fashion. He states: “If I see an opportunity to make money, I go with that.”

Following said interview, in which Alessio Rastani mentioned that he had been dreaming about another recession and that it is not governments which rule the world, but rather multinational investment company Goldman Sachs, he has been met by a barrage of abuse, with some people suggesting that he might be a sociopath or even a psychopath.
