I read a good article this morning by Jon Nadler, Senior Analyst with Kitco Bullion Dealers about the recent short selling activities on global stock markets. Jon states that whilst last Friday's ban on short selling was a profoundly sad day for the free market system, he discovered over the weekend that there might be more to that decision than initially thought. There has been chatter on the Beltway that the markets may have been the victim of economic terrorism by way of coordinated short raids that originated in London and Dubai. While the legitimacy of this remains to be seen, Jon Nadler confirms that his source is well-respected. Additionally it makes sense as the goals of terrorism are economic destruction and social upheaval. Jon stated that breaking the capital market construct would effectively achieve both goals. Does anyone have anything to add this this?
