This is not really a surprise to anyone. I lived on the street. And I worked on the street.
Wall Street starts at broadway and continues down to Water Street. Along the way, it gets crooked.Right around Broad Street it starts to curve. If you are standing at one end of Wall Street and try to look at the other end, you won’t see it.
It’s crooked. It jags.
It turns a little.
People walk back and forth daydreaming about getting rich. Others are crying because they couldn’t make it. And if you can’t make it there, as the song sort of goes, you can’t make it anywhere.Which is really true.
Because “there” is where the money is. And people get desperate around money. So desperate they will do anything to get it.
At one point I invested in a dozen hedge funds. Eleven of them ended up being caught doing illegal activity. I think a few people are in jail.
Every night I was scared because I started to see what was going on until eventually I shut the whole thing down.
