As Bangladesh Stock Market Plunges Again, Local Investors Riot For Second Time In A Month
If there is anyone watching this video of what happens to a banana republic when its ponzi stock market plunges, it is Ben Bernanke. The Princeton-educated depression era expert is certainly learning from the mistakes of the Bangladesh stock exchange (flash crashing 9.25% at last check before being halted), which despite US investment bank pitches to the contrary, never instituted its own plunge (and subsequent riot) protection team. And this is despite an identical situtation happening just three weeks earlier. Take home message: every ponzi scheme-based banana republic needs its own President's Working Group on Flash Crash prevention.
