We all know money rules the world, but capitalism is supposed to be a system where you invest money in good businesses so they do well and you get a return. This guy made it clear that these days, they are simply gambling, doesn't matter whether companies (or countries) do well or badly, they can make money out of it. And what he was saying that in the next 12 months the system is going to collapse, a major recession, and he is rubbing his hands with glee because he, the 'smart' people, Goldman Sachs, etc will make loads of money whilst you and me, the small people with our money in the bank, paying taxes and perhaps a small pension will be wiped out, taken to the cleaners.
