Goldman bankers get rich betting on food prices as millions starve

A valuable article in the Independent highlighting the cold and ruthless attitude of bankers towards those who are most vulnerable. Not surprising given the industries history – but worth being reminded so that their propaganda in the MSM might have less chance of having its desired effect!

Bank criticised for making £250m after destructive spikes in global food market
"Goldman Sachs made more than a quarter of a billion pounds last year by speculating on food staples, reigniting the controversy over banks profiting from the global food crisis.

Less than a week after the Bank of England Governor, Sir Mervyn King, slapped Goldman Sachs on the wrist for attempting to save its UK employees millions of pounds in tax by delaying bonus payments, the investment bank faces fresh accusations that it is contributing to rising food prices.”
