In stunning honesty, international trader, Alessio Rastani declares his - and Wall Street types - fondness for economic chaos.
But in an even more revealing declaration, Rastani confirms what many people have speculated, governments are not the ultimate power brokers.
According to Rastani, huge - too big to fail - multinational corporation, such as Goldman Sachs, rule the world.

While European government and financial leaders are scrambling to prevent a financial crisis in the Eurozone that would likely throw the global economy into even more turmoil, stock trader Alessio Rastani took to BBC today to tell the world that traders were looking forward to the possibility of a second big recession.
“For most traders, it’s not about – we don’t really care that much how they’re going to fix the economy, how they’re going to fix the whole situation,” he said. “Our job is to make money from it.”
Rastani, who also claimed “Goldman Sachs rules the world,” said,
“Personally, I’ve been dreaming of this moment for three years…I go to bed every night and I dream of another recession.When the market crashes… if you know what to do, if you have the right plan set up, you can make a lot of money from this.”
