Another banker ‘suicide’! This time an expert in high-frequency, algorithmic trading; involved in massive amounts of trading in that way. Joseph Farrell speculates that this gentleman came into contact with something that caused him to become a big liability to somebody. What could that be? The vast surveillance capacity of the NSA may not, necessarily, be utilized to spy on everybody per say, but the ultimate purpose of this platform is to model aggregate human behavior, allowing for market predictions and thus, ultimately this surveillance mechanism becomes a huge insider-trading bonanza. That’s the hypothesis former Secretary of HUD, Catherine Austin Fitts shares.
In light of the above, mother of all insider trading ‘hypothesis’, it’s understandable now why previous such banker suicides have been classified as ‘Trade Secrets’ by the Federal Regulator. If this suicide was a top level snuff job, to silence the employee from spilling those trade secrets on the one hand, the bank collected benefits on the other, benefits in the form of bank-owned life insurance (BOLI) — a controversial practice that pays the corporation when a current or former employee dies, not the family?
