Independent trader Alessio Rastani made his fame during the BBC interview earlier this week. What he said “shocked” those in the studio as well as the public. The anchor said the people around her “jaws collectively dropped”. He said:

“I don’t really care how governments are going to fix the economy; our job is to make money from it.”

“This is not a time right now for wishful thinking that governments are going to sort it out. Governments do not rule the world, Goldman Sachs rules the world.”

“The biggest risk people can take right now is not acting.
