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.

I noted 7 years ago:

I am NOT calling for the overthrow of the government. In fact, I am calling for the reinstatement of our government. I am calling for an end to lawless dictatorship and a return to the rule of law. Rather than trying to subvert the constitution, I am calling for its enforcement.

***

The best way to avoid all types of revolution would be for the government to start following the rule of law. I passionately hope it will do so.

The fact that even mainstream economists like Roubini are talking about hanging bankers shows that this is the last chance for the justice system – the only thing which stands between criminals on Wall Street and pitchforks – to work.

    Max Keiser can say that because he is Jewish. Tens of thousands of Occupy Wall Street call for jailing some of the Wall Street crooks and the entire OWS has been called ‘anti-Semitic’ and pro-Iran and pro-Muslim Brotherhood.

      I find that very interesting, since we proved it was Soros who funded, organized and ran the OWS movement out of the UN offices in NY. Soros is a khazar and not a muslim…. so I think you got some wrong info or disinfo to redirect attention away from Soros. Its why nothing got done. It went no where except to deflect the anger that was building at the time. He took all the heat out of it by creating a vehicle where those angry thought something would be done. When it wasn’t, they just gave up. Very effective counter intelpro move.

        SOROS!!!!

          George Soros changed his birth name from: Giorgie Schwartz…his rap sheet is extensive, worldwide.

          Only Mass Arrests of Financial Terrorists and Gov’t Tyrants– can happen now, PDQ!!!

    We should recognize that the Federal Reserve operates on a government grant of authority. It is alleged to be privately owned. The 12 FR banks have been adjudicated as such. The FRBOG has yet to face a court challenge as to its (alleged) private ownership. It is a misconception to suggest the FR is the government—but it is conceded the BOG wants you to think of the Fed as government.

      Hi, the link to the document has been already broken. Any other ways to have this info?

      • Travis Broes

        For your info Reb, The Crown Corporation own US Inc,which is not the USA. Washington DC is not part of the USA,it is a Corporate City State which is the Capital of The USA. However the Government are all depts of US INC, Congress, Dept of Justice,Helth Dept, Defense Force, The FED, The IRS, CIA,FBI,NSA, Federeal Marshalls , Homeland Security, NASA, State congress, State Police, National Guard ,Education Dept, DEA, Border Patrol , Treasury ,UN, IMF, Bank of England own it & Rothschild owns the bank of England, Crown Corporation, The Vatican ,Brussels, Ukrain, Israel, The Reserve Bank of Australia, The Australian Federal Government, The Canadian Govt, The New Zealand Government,The German Govt, British Govt, & all but three Govts worldwide. Some have decided to revolt . More all the time. So your case is built on the courts in the US Inc Corporation,who happen to be the ones you are trying to fight in the same court owned by them. Good luck with that Reb. Put on your greys because the south has to rise again.

    As Tonto says to Lonely Rider “But who are we, kemosabi?”

  • muzi

    Yeah something needs to be done about the banksters. Fines are not good enough they must jail them because their selfish acts effects many people.

    • Karen

      Jail… perhaps… taking away their “stuff,” maybe even worse than jail for them, hanging… not before restitution is allowed.

  • mike

    i argue for the efficacy of simply murdering them in their beds.

    • bob

      Nah, no actual murder.. but how about putting the head of their favorite horse in their bed? ..after which the find themselves in a jail cell for the next 15 years.

  • Shawn

    It’s about time someone was writing about this in the media. WE NEED MORE OF THIS TO SPREAD!!! Not necessarily hangings…but jail for sure.

    they should be collected on a spaceship and moved to an empty small planet where there is no technology and start from a fresh leaf – no servants, no money, no houses, only trees, plants and and fish in the water…

    • Shamus

      Yet, as they would undoubtedly bring with them their lowly (from the waist down) consciousness they’ve so avidly perfected here, they’d surely despoil the small planet , even the spaceship transporting them.

    BRAVO!! This is so excellent. I need to be able to email it to everyone I know. Thank you for this article we are getting closer!!

  • Judy G

    Why does it just have to be bankers? How about corrupt politicians?

  • Tobey

    Nothing wrong with chain gangs. If we hanged them we’d be stooping to their level. They can easily be sentenced to lifetime public service and their ill-gotten gains used to fund public projects like fixing roads, etc.

  • Carline

    The mass arrests of the dark cabal is imminent, just as the collapse of this corrupt financial system is, and the un-sustainable overconsumption of the earths natural recourses has to
    come to a hault. Currency as it is today is one big ponsy scheme in itself, let alone the miss-managing of it. May the mass arrest of the Dark cabal (illuminati) and all its sanctions be tried

  • Carline

    May the mass arrest of all these banksters and other sanctions of the Dark cabal be tried for all there crimes imposed against our constitution. The current situation heir on planet earth is the result of a corrupt and faulty system at work, and it doesn’t take a genius to project a future of this non-since if it isn’t taken on head-on. Mines well start now, time to take our world back and incorporate peice and harmony :) Namaste

  • The Energy Doctor

    Don’t forget the politicians! They are in league with the LIBOR fixing, Madoff stealing bankers.

  • Rashad

    the point about hanging them is well taken and very much called for but their karmic repercussions are already too colossal to bother with that, they have what is coming to them and for me to participate in their hanging will just be me taking some of their karma unto myself and i refuse to do that no matter how deliciously satisfying it may feel. vengeance is of the old paradigm that needs to be left behind, to see us gather over them in a collected hate while they hang or burn will probably give them a sort of sick pleasure in the knowing that they have turned us into a bunch of barbarians and they will virtually pat their back with a job well done and take their departure into the non-physical. they are already probably going to have to reincarnate a million times into extremely tormented lives with severe hardships before they can re-balance their energy, so send your prayers to them. i would much rather see these beings put before a public court to answer for their actions while the general mass loves and forgives them. the love will boggle and enrage them more than any type of violent retaliation can ever do. they will be utterly confounded

  • Edwin

    Sure must hang bankers. But am afraid that there is not enough rope to clear the job! ;-)

    I agree with not hanging them and jailing them for life with no parole, confiscate their ill-gotten funds to fund new technologies that will enhance Humanity for the better and prosperity for all, as much as I would love to give them a cremation-of-hate, I do not want to be in their level of standards. Peace and love to the People all over the World.

    I believe the coutry as a whole needs to go on strike, everyonr with money in the bank, no mattr how much or how little should withdraw all of it, put it someplace safe and just keep it out of the bank, then they cant use our money to rob us, look at it like this….you give a banker enough money to buy a gun and he buys it and then uses it to hold you up and rob you and everyone else he can find to rob you..if we take their power away from them then they cant do any more harm to us, we as a country need to stand together as a country no matter what race we are , we are all humans and are tired of being done wrong by the people we trust to hlp us, I say loosing a little intrest is better than loosing all of it we go on strike and they might get the message, they loose the power to do the kind of harm that has gone on for way to long, isnt that why people go on strike? to get what they deserve? come on America we do have the power to make them listen but we cant get the people as a whole to agree on anything accept that something needs to be done well I think that would be a good start,take away he only tool they have to cause all this trouble, and see how long they last, if you think about it they need us more than we need them, they dont really do anything to help us unless they can make a dollar off us , so just take your money home with you and let them make the changes that are fair to us and if not let them sink, they had the power to fi the housing problems, but they begged the tapayers for help and didnt do anything but take a bunch of homes that were being paid for til they wanted nore money, the government should have told them to leave things the way they were when they were getting their money and be happy, if you think about it like this the bailout kinda paid all the money for homes that we couldnt pay for , and now they want us to keep paying, thats kinda like they get paid twice for the same home, is that fair, can you sell your home and then ask the government to pay you back for that? hell no! why do the banks get to do it? thats why we need to stand up as a country and go on strike, together! If we act as one we will get more results.If we stand together they will either listen or they will fall……….Dont you think its time we took our country back? bfore its really to late, simple they work for us and its time they understand that instead of making rules that hurt us and help them use our money to bring us down
    take the power away from them and watch them fall.!
