A large number of comments to this blog have referred to how prominent Jews have been in the development of the current meltdown. This is indeed true, and not only have they dominated in terms of numbers, many (e.g. Rubin, Greenspan) also seem to have escaped the train wreck with their fortunes largely intact.
What does this prove? A coterie of Jews meeting in a dark room, cackling as they draw up their plans to rip off the goyim?
No. Jews make up a disproportionate ratio of Wall St. gangsters for the same reason they're disproportionately represented among doctors, professors, media tycoons, philosophers and writers: High IQ.
And this is exactly the same reason you see so few blacks numbered among those occupations. Or among the Wall St. crooks. As this post and many other related ones show, career performance is determined by IQ more than any other characteristic. Jews are, very disproportionately, highly intelligent with a strong work ethic. Blacks are neither.
And I conclude by suggesting that the cleanout of this particular nest of rats will driven and lead by, yes, Jews. Because they'll be the ones most able to do it. As I've said on several occasions, you'll find Jews on both sides of every argument or divide. There is no all-encompassing Jewish Plot.
