There are only fantasies in which people from one hour to the next decide that this or that company is worth so many billions, more or less. It doesn’t have a thing to do with reality or with the Swedish economy.” ~ Steig Larsson

After the markets closed Vinny would get into his Cadillac and drive out to his big house in Long Island.

  11. “Fear and hope remain the same; therefore the study of the psychology of speculators is as valuable as it ever was. Weapons change, but the strategy remains strategy, on the New York Stock Exchange as on the battlefield. I think the clearest summing up of the whole thing was  expressed by Thomas F. Woodlock when he declared: “The principles of successful stock speculation are based on the supposition that people will continue in the future to make the mistakes that they have made in the past.”” ~ Edwin Lefevre
  12. “Political systems must love poverty-they produce so much of it. Poor people make easier targets for a demagogue. No Mao or even Jiang Zemin is likely to arise on the New York Stock Exchange floor. And politicians in democracies benefit from destitution, too.

That’s not what I call capitalism.” ~ Louis O. Kelso

  16. “I’ve been on Wall Street once in my life in 1980 as a tourist. I went to see the stock exchange when I was 18 years old. Im not a Wall Street lawyer, I’m a Stanwix Street lawyer. Stanwix Street is a street in downtown Pittsburgh.” ~ Keith Rothfus
  17. “It is no accident that stock exchange floors – in addition to bedroom floors – bring out the noisy blood, the flushed cheek, and the passionate cries of men. Most men are making love when they make ‘magical’ amounts of money.” ~ Phyllis Chesler
  18. “Nothing tells in the long run like a good judgment, and no sound judgment can remain with the man whose mind is disturbed by the mercurial changes of the stock exchange. It places him under an influence akin to intoxication. What is not, he sees, and what he sees, is not.” ~ Andrew Carnegie

  28. “I think we have lost our way when people like the [board of] governors and the CEO of the NYSE fail to realize they have a duty to the rest of us to act as exemplars… You do not want your first-grade school teacher to be fornicating on the floor or drinking booze in the classroom; similarly, you do not want your stock exchange to be setting the wrong moral example.” ~ Charlie Munger
  29. “To really observe the Sabbath in our day and age! To cease for a whole day from all business, from all work, amidst the frenzied hurry-scurry of our age!

  32. “Trading is a small part of the work of the stock exchanges. They are really to do with financial speculation, and they speculate on the value of the yen, the dollar, the pound, the franc, or the euro, at any given time. Billions are lost and billions are made by this speculation, and that’s what the stock exchanges are about. They are for greedy minds.” ~ Benjamin Creme
  33. “I began to study again, and now for the first time really achieved an understanding of the content of the Jew Karl Marx’s life effort. Only now did his Capital become really intelligible to me, and also the struggle of the Social Democracy against the national economy, which aims only to prepare the ground for the domination of truly international finance and stock exchange capital.” ~ Adolf Hitler

We don’t go home at the end of the day and think, “Well, I really know who I am now because the Wall Street Journal says that the Stock Exchange closed at this many points.” What we know about how to be who we are comes from stories. It comes from the novels, the movies, the fashion magazines. It comes from popular culture.” ~ Chris Abani , Stock Exchange quotes news
  37. “It’s true that private enterprise is extremely flexible, But its only good within very narrow limits.

The girls, we say, do not have to earn; so why should they be educated? As long as such ideas persist there is no hope of our ever knowing the true value of education.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
