    Why? there isn't enough jealousy and envy around already?

    There have always been super rich. The only things that have changed is the Yardstick by which wealth was measured.

    Because it outlines how billions of dollars were stolen from hard working Americans by hedge fund managers.

    I can't understand folks like you. Did you notice the dramatic increase in the number of billionaires? Do you know that very few of the wealthy inherited their wealth, unless their names were Kennedy.

    First of all, how do those who are wealty hurt you? Second, this country allows all of us the opportunity to become those wealthy. Just speak to immigrants.

    What's your beef?

    Unless you invested in a hedge fund no one stole crap from you.

    Have you been living in a cave the last 6 months?

    Are you really this ignorant?

    The hedge fund managers on Wall Street ran a Ponzi scheme called derivatives and stole billions and billions of dollars from hard working Americans and bankrupted America...

    Derivitives aren't a ponzi scheme you idiot and the hedge fund managers got hammered. We've got a problem with over valued derivatives. That is a result of the problem of wildly skewed housing market.

    Dude is under the delusion that con men only steal from large numbers of people that don't have any money rather than one very rich guy that has millions and millions....???

    Does that make sense to you ?

    You didn't read the article did you?

    At one point the derivative bubble was $519 TRILLION DOLLARS.

    That's not a misprint.

    The total GDP of all the countries in the world is only $50 trillion dollars.

    It was clearly a Ponzi scheme, and they knew it.

    Evidently you have no clue what a Ponzi scheme is.
