Third Banker, Former Fed Member, “Found Dead” Inside A Week

 

 

 

 

” If the stock market were already crashing then it would be simple to blame the dismally sad rash of dead bankers in the last week on that – certainly that was reflected in 1929. However, for the third time in the last week, a senior financial executive has died in what appears to be a suicide. As Bloomberg reports, following the deaths of a JP Morgan senior manager (Tuesday) and a Deutsche Bank executive (Sunday),Russell Investments’ Chief Economist (and former Fed economist) Mike Dueker was found dead at the side of a highway in Washington State. Police said the death appeared to be a suicide.

the campaign (a joint effort between Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee) raised a total of $101.3 million
dollars, and has $185.9 million in the bank. Meanwhile, the joint effort of President Obama
and the Democratic National Committee raised $75 million and has $95.8 million in the bank.”
