I just read the dramatic story of an old man who had placed all his savings in 22.000 Fortis shares and lived off the dividends. Now that the shares are almost worthless the man has lost "everything".
I find it difficult to sympathise with that man. How stupid can one get ? Doesn't every prudent saver avoid to put all his eggs in one basket ? Was it stupidity, shortsightedness or greed for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow ?
In any case, I hope there is life after death, so that bankers get their well deserved comeuppance for their sheer stupdity, utter shortsightedness and limitless greed which ruined thousands upon thousands of gullible clients.
Because they will never get it in this life.
