Just like the amazingly talented traders who shorted American Airlines and United (to the extent of 25 times their normal daily volumes the week before the 9/11 attack),someone else was able to profit massively from the demise of Bear Stearns by predicting it would lose more than half its value in nine days or less:

We all know Goldman has a knack of producing exceptional trading returns from its trading activities,far in excess of what could be considered normal, or lucky, or skilfull.

But what happens when its trading activities start to produce losses,real exceptionally large losses?

That is when too big to fail kicks in of course,and taxpayers get reminded that they must swallow Goldmans losses as well as their own job losses,401K losses,equity account losses,housing losses.TARP 2 coming soon.
