I’ve never been in favor of market regulation. The capitalist markets take care of themselves.
But by the time I finished reading the revealing 2009 Rolling Stone article by Matt Taibbi, “The Great American Bubble Machine,” I wondered whether some regulation -- or at least greater enforcement -- might actually be a good thing.
It’s a tale of conspiratorial suspense, but at its core, Taibbi’s article is a startling indictment of Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS ) .
I’d like to share the article’s premise with you, and then fill you in on a unique way to ensure you don’t get caught up in the disaster of the next Goldman catastrophe, which is being set up right now.
According to the article: Goldman was involved in building unsustainable investment trusts prior to the Great Depression, and decades later became "the IPO king of the Internet era." It played a role in inflating the housing market bubble and was the major source of the oil spike of 2008.
I believe the next bubble Goldman is looking to profit from is social-media companies and their coming IPOs. Allow me to explain, and then share with you a better stock you’re likely overlooking.
