Most reality shows gets tens to hundreds of thousands of applicants so the chances of actually getting picked are like the chances of me kissing and making up with the SEC aka slim to none. But not so in the joke that is the finance industry.
Thanks to absurd, blatantly anti-American regulations (SEC take a bow) limiting freedom of speech, freedom of the press and basically everything to which we Americans take for granted, firms and industry insiders won’t allow video cameras—and even more dangerous a possible international audience—to view such XXX-rated evils like stock trading and brokers baiting and switching! Money-making is simply too scandalous to ever be allowed to go mainstream, the public just wouldn’t be able to handle it, right?
This is why our children, influenced by TV/society, ignore finance/using their brains in favor of more animalistic/primitive pursuits, trying to perfect their voices (American Idol), muscles (ARod or American Gladiator) or looks (America’s Next Top Model) to get rich and famous.
Luckily, if you don’t give a flying f$#@ about some imaginary line drawn by corrupt balding bastards (encore bow SEC…hmmm, they really like the ephors in the movie 300 aren’t they?) or if your firm is crappy/desperate enough to be willing to bend the rules, I give you THIS open Wall Street Warriors casting call. This Tuesday afternoon.
