Some thought we were exaggerating a tad in our posts..
So, here's another example..
“The human toll here looks to be much worse than the economic toll, and we can be grateful for that. And the human toll is a tragedy, we know that. (~ mentioned as a quick aside) But these markets.. stocks, commodites, oil, gold..there is no major breakout or breakdown and we have to look at that as a positive”- Larry Kudlow, CNBC host, 'The Kudlow Report'
~ We wanted to provide the full quote since many other blogs have only focused on the first part which is the more sensationalistic. 'A&G' does not distort quotations or play 'gotcha', and we will not accuse Kudlow of being a complete heartless bastard.
Kudlow is simply one of numerous examples on Wall St. and financial news, of how people in that particular world of finance and investment prioritize. They have no emotional connection to others' suffering and every national and global event is viewed through the prism of how it affects markets and profit-making. The scope of human tragedy is not filtered through into their conscious.
Clinically defined, people like Kudlow are non-violent Sociopaths.
