Seems central banks jobs nowadays is to goose economies w/printing more money so that households spend more & stock bourses be worth more. What a pathetic bunch of losers...and they think they are so smart. Hilarious.

How white and male Wall Street really is http://ln.is/businessinsider.com/w2u0O …
It's great news that Wall Street banks are publicly disclosing their diversity metrics. But the data shows they have a long way to go.

Wall Street thinks this is a correction – a 10% drop, 20% at worst, followed by more gains. Delusional. Bubbles Don’t Correct, They BURST!

Bragging rights
The best bragging is having others brag about you.
Work
Occupation
I am an Oil & Gas Trader & Financier, Lobbyist, Activist and Philanthropist. I like to push the envelope in everything I undertake. I strongly believe everything is possible hence I never ever surrender. I avoid negative people who emanate negative vibes and have a knack of detecting bullshit and bullshitters a mile away. My life philosophy is very simple: If you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it. Timidity is dangerous: Better to enter with boldness. Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected with more audacity.
Skills
Strategic Advisory, Principal Investments, Oil Trading, Entrepreneurship, Corporate Finance, Private Equity, Venture Capital, and of course... sales. Because it's all and always about selling. You're always selling something and when not selling a product/service, you're selling yourself! ...The mother of all sales.
