Video: Michael Douglas Battles Greed with FBI

Posted: February 28th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Video: Michael Douglas Battles Greed with FBISubmit Comment
Michael Douglas, the same man who told us that "greed is good" in the 1987 film "Wall Street," has now teamed up with the FBI to tell us that greed is not good in hopes of getting tips on criminals who commit securities fraud and insider trading, the same crimes that his character Gekko was arrested for.

"In the movie 'Wall Street' I played Gordon Gekko, a greedy corporate executive who cheated to profit while innocent investors lost their savings," Douglas says in the video. "The movie was fiction, but the problem is real. Our economy is increasingly dependent on the success and integrity of the financial markets. If a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is."

FBI added: "The more people out there aware of the problem, the more opportunities we have to get tips." Check out the video below.

It took you 25 f*cking years to find that out!

"Our economy is increasingly dependent on the success and integrity of the financial markets"

I'm not sure where to start. I mean, was it ever any different? Banks have been around a long time, sure, and wealthy landowners even back in Jefferson's time were the equivalent of today's corporations, so the economy was really dependent on them, the few wealthy white guys, so what's changed? Is he suggesting something different? Communism?

Because I know he's not advocating going back to feudalism or agrarian society, because how would he get his coke and hookers and radical life-saving cancer-fighting treatments?

Who would pay him a million or two to do a sh*tty sequel to a film few have seen, and fewer want to see?

Yeah, he's one to talk. I guess he thinks the government should control the economy, when in fact every time they f*ck with the free market, they cause either a depression or a recession, as per the 1929 banking crash and the 2008...banking crash.

Shut the f*ck up and f*ck your hot wife before it's too late, you lucky old bastard !

I don't like the idea of wealthy people running the economy but it sounds most likely than the government, since to much power to it would bring this country to an absolutist regime.
minkowski writes:

Who else is going to run it? Yeah, we don't trust the wealthy, but do you trust the government? With their sh*tty services, thirty page applications for loans and their 600 dollar hammer and toilet seats?

Would you have the poor running the economy? Because I'm sure that would work out just spiffy; maybe make some homeless bum Secretary of the Treasury, or perhaps Jerry Lewis instead.

Things are the way they are in large p[art because they can't be any other way. You can edit them, pare them down, change some things, but wealthy people have the cash, life isn't fair, inequality is natural and people need to get the f*ck over it already.

On the other hand, instead of blaming the banks for the 2008 meltdown, how about we blame CONGRESS for forcing them into an easy position of financial vulturism, but no, those f*ckers NEVER take any blame for things going tits-up because they're too busy getting serviced below the waist by lobbyists...

"Our economy is increasingly dependent on the success and integrity of the financial markets"

To anyone wondering why this would be true, it began somewhere in the Reagan administrations deregulation of the financial markets...capped off by Clinton's repeal of Glass-Steagall (which kept commercial and investment banks separate...or in layman's terms, prohibited banks from gambling with peoples savings on the stock market).

Also, it is a logical fallacy to only present a choice between two extremes, or a rampant unregulated financial oligarchy and a state run commune. Their exists a grey area in the world where no absolute ideology prevails.

Now I think this was a good psa and thank him for his time. Plus while the 2nd wall street was sh*t......it was not because of him. Shia and brolin f*cked that pooch. I think MD's part and story arc was well drawn out and dramatic. Not to mention how good his performence was. I think he deserves immense praise for the single fact that his presence made an unwatchable movie watchable. Plus he survived cancer and he f*cks and gets head from CZJ on a daily basis.....how can u not love this guy?

What a verbose and idiotic way of saying there exists some number or numbers between one and zero, aka fractions and decimals.

Good to know. Thanks!
