Greed Is Good and Everyone's Drinking The Same Kool-Aid


Twenty three years later, it seems that Greed Is Good is still serving the same Kool-Aid. Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone together again, each with new beautiful wives. 

October 19, 1987 (Black Monday), September 29, 2008 and Last Friday 2010: biggest point losses, biggest percentage losses, trillions of dollars lost or misplaced. One wonders if all that money really disappeared or if someone retrieved it.

I don't know what the lesson is here.

  5. This reminds me how I need to watch the first Wall Street again. I'll definitely watch this second installment, though I don't know how good it will be. I can't say I believe in money disappearing...
