    Can anyone say…….RICO…………….JPMorgan….finally….
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-16/jpmorgan-s-metals-desk-was-a-criminal-enterprise-u-s-says
    U.S. prosecutors took an unusually aggressive turn in their investigation of price fixing at JPMorgan Chase & Co., describing its precious metals trading desk as a criminal enterprise operating inside the bank for nearly a decade.

    The prosecutors charged the head of JPMorgan’s global precious metals trading operation and two others on Monday, accusing them of “conspiracy to conduct the affairs of an enterprise involved in interstate or foreign commerce through a pattern of racketeering activity.”

      OOTB Jerry says:

      That’s a reference to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, a law often used against organized crime rings. The U.S. has rarely invoked RICO law in big bank cases. Its use suggests that JPMorgan may face deeper legal jeopardy, going beyond the several individuals who have already been prosecuted.

        I would guess that there is serious legal jeopardy at this point.

      Maybe, there is some tesla energy going on ……a little earth shaking experience for old JPM….

        Big Al says:

        If JPM is guilty, I would love to see serious prosecution by the Federal Government. I would think that we all would and that includes Bill Murphy.

        Thanks Jerry, you obviously put Zero Hedge in the credible source category. Thanks for that statement.

            Unlike the Epoch Times founded by a Chinese Falung Gong member, and fairly conservative, I find Zerohedge a bit too left-leaning.

            Ivandjiiski. Daniel Ivandjiiski (Bulgarian: Данаил Иванджийски, born 8 November 1978) is a Bulgarian born, U.S.–based, former investment banker and capital markets trader, and currently financial blogger, who founded the website Zero Hedge in January 2009, and remains its main publisher and editor.

            I have to say I do think Zerohedge does a pretty good job. However, the comments section is basically insane, although it can be very funny

            Thank you Nigel……I agree with you…..

      Agree Jerry, finally. DOJ taking a more aggressive approach on these issues, not protecting the biggest guys for political payoff–a welcome and good sign. Even if DOJ doesn’t get a conviction, the efforts to hold the biggest financial powers accountable sends a much needed message.

      The previous administration used selective prosecution as a political weapon – the biggest political donors got a free ride.
      And look at the largest Clinton campaign funders in 2016:
      https://www.opensecrets.org/pres16/industries?id=N00000019
      Securities and Investments industry tried buying her favor.
      Its high time to level the playing field, and give the small traders and asset managers a chance to succeed in a ever more corrupt system.

    Hooker and Harris……….should run as a tag team…….

      And, your rationale behind that statement is Jerry?

      • On September 16, 2019 at 1:55 pm,
        OOTB Jerry says:

        Neither one has anything to offer…….and together, they are doubly ineffective….but maybe together, they can come up with something to like…..they both have vivid imaginations …..and as a team……they can play off each other….

      Raymondo,

      Please fully explain your comment as I understood “The Great Transformation” to refer to a different event. Thank you

        Press “read more”

        It must be understood, however, that a “market economy” only works when combined with a viable set of morals/ethics.

          Hard to assume that we have a viable set of ethics right now.

            It certainly appears that the Democrat Party is consumed by hatred of Trump and general greed for power; while Republicans are mostly consumed by general greed.
            Deadly sins for the country as a whole.

            I believe little short of term Limits and balanced budget amendments can save the country.

    I am distressed that there appears to be a world-wide attack on Christianity and Judeo-Christian morality in general.
    This attack is openly promoted by the BBC in the UK, as part of its government endorsed multiculturalism.
    As a person who has lived several in 3 different countries, each for at least several years, and have visited dozens of countries for extended periods, all I can say is that we are experiencing a serious decline in civilization as poor people flood into Western countries at a rate that reduces the chances of any assimilation.
    We appear to be headed to a world of ill-educated unproductive socialists sucking the lifeblood of civilization.

      CFS…I have to agree with most of what you just wrote , as someone who is pretty low down on the food chain , i see whats happening on a daily basis in the UK , the country is been flooded with imigreants , legal & illegal .
      Christian Churches are closing down & been sold off on a montly basis , yet Muslium places of worship are opening at an alarming pace. The UK is being destroyed at an alarming pace by the elites , & the bastards in the european commision.
