The New York Times is quoting a spokesman for George Soros as saying that the well-known operator is guilty of no wrong-doing in connection with the upheaval currently affecting Greece and Europe as a whole.
But Zubi Diamond, author of the powerful new book,Wizards of Wall Street, says the agenda of Soros and other short sellers is clear. Their purpose, he says, is “to loot America and any foreign country which invested in America. Greece was one of them. Iceland was ravaged and annihilated.”
The term “short selling” in this context refers to investors, speculators and currency manipulators who bet on the decline or collapse of a stock or through complex financial instruments handled mostly through secret off-shore accounts. For the hedge fund short sellers to make money, prices have to go down.
Short sellers, who are appearing at a March 11 event at the libertarian Cato Institute, insist that they “provide liquidity and transparency to our capital markets” and that their operations “expose corporate and mismanagement.”
