VIDEO: Mainstream Economist "We Might Need to Hang Some Bankers to Stop Criminal Looting"

Even Nouriel Roubini Says We Need to Jail or Hang Some Bankers

Nobel prize winning economist Joe Stiglitz – and many other experts – have said nothing will change unless dishonest bankers are jailed.

Former trader Max Keiser has been calling for years for crooked bankers to be hanged, to send a message that crime won’t be tolerated.

But Nouriel Roubini is a lot more mainstream than Keiser – or even Stiglitz – being very close to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. See this and this.

Roubini told Bloomberg that nothing has changed since the start of the financial crisis, and we might need to throw bankers in jail – or hang them in the streets – before they’ll change:

Nobody has gone to jail since the financial crisis. The banks, they do things that are illegal and at best they slap on them a fine. If some people end up in jail, maybe that will teach a lesson to somebody. Or somebody hanging in the streets.

Unfortunately, it may not be hypothetical

I started saying it several years ago. Nothing will change until the CEO of some major banking cartel and his family are killed by a group of people pushed too far. Then, things would start to happen.

I hope not, I hope change can come with civil disobedience. But, people where I live won't even join an anti-war demonstration, much less stop paying their taxes.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Sounds like a lot of effort, hanging is an easy way out.

But nobody wants the real cure, or so it seems.

The cure. As of now all expenses are to be paid with revenues.

Cut a trillion and a half dollars from the federal budget, or whatever is needed to run government cash and carry.

Government Sale of Treasury Bonds requires a consensus in the House.

End all government programs that buy services from members of the Federal Reserve System.

Do we, like Andrew Jackson have the courage to kill the Monster Bank, before it kills us?

Congress is a incompetent, the electorate is in la-la land and Government is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. The State of the Union is consistent, at the very least.

Free includes debt-free!

stealing 100 + Trillion dollars through fraud

... Yes, we should hang ALL banksters by their necks until they cease respiration altogether. Then we shall burn their bodies, then eject their ashes towards the sun. Finally we should desecrate their gravesites, erase their genetic lines altogether, and erect permanent stones to remember their crimes-against-humanity and permanently discredit their godless aims... like a reverse Georgia guide-stones ( which themselves shall soon be annihilated and replaced with a marker remembering the day We The People destroyed these globalist anti-human scum-sucking evil filth ... )

All that, and we'll still have the same

politicians to start a new round of crony financial favortism all over again. And the same huge load of unfunded liabilities.

Shall I bring the rope, the wood or the nails?

Hell, I'll bring all three.

hang "em high

... till the last drop of evillllll drains out of their lifeless corps into the bottomless pit wherefrom they came in the first place.
