La sociėtė gėnėrale and the single bullet theory. (advisory: likely contains bullshit)
In these days of Pooh bear markets, could a single bullet have pulled off the so-called fraude of the decade leaving La sociėtė gėnėrale dazed and out of pocket. I don’t think so. I suggest that this benign bullet (ferdinand?), let’s call him Jėrôme Kerviel, has agreed to take the rap for the reckless behaviour of his bunk bank in return for some kind of compensation down the road to perdition. It seems that whilst in la cage aux faûx of la société he was selling shorts when he should have been buying them and buying longs that were too short to cover his ass. Now le pen will greet him with open gait and a swinging bat. Unless of course some Jacques Rubie-style vigilante, self-appointed? rep for all the angry investors bent on restoring the lost honneur to la république, takes him out for dineros.
Bear* with me,
