September 11, 2001 started out just like any other day on Wall Street.

At the time, I was a managing director at Goldman Sachs, one of the biggest investment banks in the world.

I was raking in a seven-figure salary.

And I had a coveted corner office on the 29th floor.

My office was just blocks away from the World Trade Center.

That morning, I was on the trading floor working on a big derivatives deal… when a coworker mentioned a plane had just flown by my office window.

As it turns out, my office was on the flight path when the first plane hit the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m.

United Airlines flight 175 followed not long after. It was the second plane.

The hours and days that unfolded were chaotic for us all. But what stuck with me the most was my boss’s response…

Hank Paulson, then-Goldman Sachs Chairman and CEO, left a message on our internal voicemail.

He said the “people of Goldman Sachs” had a duty to return to their workplaces. I felt differently.

Instead, I spent days at the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue. I helped people comb through lists of artifacts to find anything that belonged to their loved ones.

I realized life was too short to waste time.

Over the weeks that followed, I knew I had another calling – to shed light on the shadiness of Wall Street and corporate America.

Much to the chagrin of my mother, I quit my job at Goldman. I gave up potential millions of dollars in compensation in order to freely tell the truth.

Since then, I’ve dedicated my life to helping people understand what’s happening in the world of money. And what it means for their wealth.

Elite Connections and Corporate Scandals

After I left Wall Street, I dug into the elite connections that shaped corporate favoritism… and the scandals that resulted.

And I warned of the calamity that would befall the financial system due to the house of cards Wall Street had created.

In fact, I forecast the 2008 financial crisis four years before it happened… And I wrote about exactly how and why it would unfold.

I published my first book about this in 2004, just two years after I left Wall Street. It’s called Other People’s Money: The Corporate Mugging of America.

In it, I warned that the “next bull market’s bust will be even more devastating than the last one.”

And I wrote this about the activities of big banks and insurance companies, such as AIG:

A brewing area of conflict of interest at the supermarket banks is their use of credit derivatives… The picture will only worsen when [insurers] start admitting their losses… which they are not obligated to disclose during their fall, but only when they hit bottom.

Four years later, these activities led to the $13 trillion mega-bank bailouts during the 2008 financial crisis – and they were just the beginning.

I was one of the few insiders who dared to expose this exclusive global banking framework. And I wasn’t afraid to talk about it…

I did interviews on TV and radio… I spoke to audiences of students and politicians… I wrote numerous newspaper articles and books on the subject.

But nobody listened… until the crisis hit. Then, my phone didn’t stop ringing. Interview and speaking requests came fast and furious.

Exposing the Moral Rot on Wall Street

Since then, I’ve made it my mission to shed light on the moral rot at the core of Wall Street and the shadiness of corporate America.

If you’ve read any of my books that exposed the corruption on Wall Street, you’ll know I’m not afraid of controversy.

And as a member of the advisory board of the whistle-blowing organization ExposeFacts, I’ll do whatever it takes to get to the truth.

Over the years, I’ve exposed…

  • How the too-big-to-fail banks that got bailed out during the financial crisis had the tightest top-level government connections… And how they got the most help from the Federal Reserve.

  • I’ve also exposed the blood, money, and power relationships between Wall Street banking dynasties and American presidents throughout the 20th century. These connections still impact our lives today. And I wrote a book about this, All the Presidents’ Bankers

  • I even filed Freedom of Information Act requests when I was investigating ties between the Clinton family and Wall Street. I wanted to get to the bottom of how those banking-political relationships impacted ordinary people.

Central Banks Helped Rig the System

See, for years, major central banks have reinforced a rigged system that has brought more inequality to the world.

Over the last 15 years or so, they’ve conjured a $30 trillion-plus monetary cushion.

They did this to support major financial players and the markets.

And they did it at the real economy’s expense. The top 1% of American earners now hold more wealth than all of the middle class combined.

Unfortunately, things could be about to get a lot worse for average Americans.

That’s because we’re now barreling towards a situation in some ways similar to 2008.

And if you have exposure to the stocks caught in the crossfire, the losses could be catastrophic. As Bloomberg put it:

The wave of [bankruptcies] that’s coming could be the worst since the housing bubble burst about 15 years ago.

But it will be different from the housing crisis we saw in 2008. And this time, I want you to be prepared.

That’s because, armed with the right strategy, it’s possible to turn this crisis into big profits.

And I’m taking what I learned during my 15 years on Wall Street to give you the chance to do just that.

On Tuesday, December 13, at 8 p.m. ET, I’m hosting a special strategy session. I’m calling it Countdown to Housing Crisis 2.0. (Sign up with one click right here.)

I’ll show you how a legendary investor is already betting $200 million against the housing market…

I’ll reveal the looming Washington event happening this month that could send this house of cards collapsing…

And I’ll tell you about a strategy that Wall Street loves… that can give you the chance to “flip” losers into big winners.

I’ll even give away a free recommendation that I believe could be one of the top plays for 2023.

So be sure to join me on December 13. Just RSVP with one click right here, and I’ll see you there.
