The predicate basis of capitalism, indeed of society Herself, is trust.
Trust, once fully shattered, is extraordinarily difficult to mend.
People today say: “I don’t trust Wall Street, I don’t trust banks.”
Notwithstanding that nobody ever did trust these places, an accommodation must be made for a society to function. We must have banks. We must have shares tradings. Such activities, honestly done, are the straws that stir the drink of life.
If I give you my money in full faith that you will watch over it, add interest to it and purchase equities and bonds and other instruments at my direction in order to increase my holdings as agreed between us, I anticipate a reasonable diligence and honesty on your part.
When I do not get that, when you steal my money, I become, understandably, nonplussed.
While much of the instant thread of conversation today speaks to the Americans having become nonplussed with finance, lamentably, the trouble is far more vexing.
When one says: “Nobody trusts banks or Wall Street,” they ignore that the Americans are equally, perhaps more so, nonplussed, with politicians, the Church, the press, the family and all other pillars of society on which gentlemanliness so tenuously now rests His restive little Head.
Nobody trusts these other societal pillars either.
Trust is the sine qua of capitalism. Without trust, there can be no trade.
More harrowingly still, beyond shattered trust in banking and finance, the concomitant collapse of trust in the other societal pillars named here: politics, press, Church, family, the legal system, the medical arts, inter alia, taken together, makes for a thick, dark underbrush through which the Americans must now band together to hack themselves out.
Said more comprehensively here then today: trust is the predicate basis of Society Herself.
Without such trust, man is left, not simply with a financial dilemma, man is left bereft of any society at all.

Tweets: @jtdbegg“Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he’s the only one who’s sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own.”~~
