GoldmanSachs666 Message Board

According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: "deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage".[1] In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud, but there have also been fraudulent "discoveries", e.g. in science, to gain prestige rather than immediate monetary gain

Goldman Sachs Looks Like a Hedge Fund

There are good reasons why the average person should not invest in the hedge fund that Goldman Sachs is writing for the ordinary person.  Part of the problem is that the Federal Reserve pumps money into the markets to prop them up.  The stock market is basically a rigged gambling machine that only the richest people can afford to play, and these include the following:

--High speed traders who can exploit regulatory loopholes;
--Inside traders that get information ahead of everyone else;
--Banking executives that see no problem with acting unethically when laws don't mandate good behavior;
--Those who hype IPOs.

From whom do the hedge funds make their money?--from large pension and savings funds that buy into the stock market scheme, of course!
Sure, Go Ahead and Invest in Goldman Sachs'[s] Hedge Fund for Average Joes (Just Don't Expect to Make Money)

But first, let us stipulate that investing in this and most other hedge funds as they operate today is a really dumb idea — not just for regular Joes but for pretty much everybody else too. Why? Because hedge funds, which were once a way for the very rich to cushion their fortunes against falling assets prices (thus the word hedge), have essentially become a way for their owner-operators to make tons of money from management fees and profit sharing while their investors get soaked trying to outperform the investing masses. (This development would get the hashtags #RichWorldProblem and #WhoReallyCares were it not for the fact that a lot of pension funds and college endowments are hedge-fund clients. But that’s for another column.)

Three things, in particular, contribute to this reality:
