I’m on with Paul Jay of the Real News Network breaking down Trump’s latest bid to be recognized as a more thoughtful candidate – his economic team. Well, outside of the usual Cipriani brunch bunch, there’s a name that I recognize – and you might too if you’ve been reading my work. That name is John Paulson – he made billions off of making millions of Americans homeless.
Paulson is the guy who crashed the mortgage market in the U.S., he brought the Royal Bank of Scotland to its knees, where it went bankrupt. And the Times of London, hardly a Marxist rag, it’s owned by Murdoch and very right-wing, the Times of London said that JP, John Paulson, should be paraded through the streets of London naked while people throw rotten fruit at him for what he’s done. Just in England. And that was nothing compared to what he’s done in the U.S.
Watch and learn about who might be running your economy in 6 months.
