Margin Call – Greedy by a nose

The events that took place creating what we now know as the ‘GFC’ have often been a mixture of rumour and conjecture. Now that rumour is a movie which looks to add fuel on the fire for the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ set and simply be a good ride for the masses. In an age when we are told to pay ahead for our retirement and invest in retirement funds which ultimately fund the share market you have to wonder if Mum and Dad (investors) really know who holds the ‘paperwork’ on the value of their investments. I have come across so many people who have lost all their invested retirement on bad advice that fuelled someone else's dream. Its not to say investing is bad it just highlights the trust empowered to the trustees of retirement funds and the fallibility of any of us when put in the position where tantalising power is an outstretched finger away.
