The apparent suicide death of the chief economist of a US investment house brings the number of financial workers who have died allegedly by their own hand to four in the last week.
50-year-old Mike Dueker, who had worked for Russell Investment for five years, was found dead close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington State, says AP.
Local police say he could have jumped over a fence and fallen 15 meters to his death, and are treating the case as a suicide.

Dueker’s apparent suicide was the fourth among financial experts in a week.

"Competition is healthy" says the capitalist who is fast to do anything to destroy his competition
they are always spouting that we need competition and inequality to innovate
as if there are no incentives to do any good without inequality. i don’t think i agree with that. look at the internet. people post amazing stuff all the time for free. i want to read more into this and see if i can find a correlation between golden ages throughout history and culture and equality of the populations.
Rich people are probably constantly worried about money as much as poor people but they don’t realize the only reason anyone has to worry is because of hoarding it and not idk being Communist. I can’t find the words.
Rude people worry as much as nice people but they don’t realize they are the problem themselves.
Here’s the thing: nice people will forgive you if you decide to change
The number one weapon of 20th century imperialism is zionist dollarism, and one of the main bases for this weapon is Zionist Israel. The ever-scheming European imperialists wisely placed Israel where she could geographically divide the Arab world, infiltrate and sow the seed of dissension among African leaders and also divide the Africans against the Asians.
Zionist Israel’s occupation of Arab Palestine has forced the Arab world to waste billions of precious dollars on armaments, making it impossible for these newly independent Arab nations to concentrate on strengthening the economies of their countries and elevate the living standard of their people.
And the continued low standard of living in the Arab world has been skillfully used by the Zionist propagandists to make it appear to the Africans that the Arab leaders are not intellectually or technically qualified to lift the living standard of their people … thus, indirectly “enducing” Africans to turn away from the Arabs and towards the Israelis for teachers and technical assistance.
"They cripple the bird’s wing, and then condemn it for not flying as fast as they."
The imperialists always make themselves look good, but it is only because they are competing against economically crippled newly independent countries whose economies are actually crippled by the Zionist-capitalist conspiracy Malcolm X, The Egyptian Gazette — Sept. 17, 1964 (via decolonizingminds)
Do you ever think about the fact that the US has created and legitimized a system of institutionalized inequality by funding schools through property taxes? That basically a child’s education is only as good as the value of the property in their neighborhood. Funny how education is so often viewed as an equalizing factor when there is nothing equal about it.
