Why are banking executives killing themselves?

Paul Joseph Watson January 31, 2014

A third banker has committed suicide within the space of a week, once again prompting speculation that some kind of financial collapse could be just around the corner.

“Mike Dueker, the chief economist at Russell Investments, was found dead at the side of a highway that leads to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington state, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. He was 50,” reports Bloomberg.

Dueker fell down a 50 foot embankment in what police are describing as a suicide. He was reported missing on January 29 by friends, who said he had been “having problems at work.”

Dueker’s apparent suicide follows those of London banking executives Gabriel Magee and Bill Broeksmit.

Magee, a 39-year-old senior manager at JP Morgan’s European headquarters, jumped 500ft from the top of the bank’s headquarters in central London on Tuesday, landing on an adjacent 9 story roof.

Last Sunday, former Deutsche Bank executive Broeksmit was found dead at his South Kensington home after police responded to reports of a man found hanging at a house. According to reports, Broeksmit had “close ties to co-chief executive Anshu Jain.”

In addition, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG also died last week but the cause of death has not been made public.

Banker suicides would be expected in the aftermath of a major stock market collapse, but the Dow Jones hit a record high just last month, although recent days have seen markets suffer heavy losses.

Some have speculated that the suicides could be related to a flurry of recent indications that some kind of major financial crash is approaching.

Earlier this week, Russian lender ‘My Bank’ banned all cash withdrawals until next week, while UK-based HSBC imposed capital controls on customers attempting to withdraw larger sums of money.

Are the spate of banker suicides merely a coincidence, or do they point to something rotten in the heart of the financial system which has yet to be revealed to the public?


50ft – one might break an arm. Are these bankers being set-up as eventual “patsy’s” when the shtf?

The CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, headed by Richard Cordray), in concert with the NSA and others, has been systematically gathering all credit card and debit card data (aka bank accounts) for the upcoming emergency withdrawal “tax” to be initiated by the federal government when the SHTF (probably soon).  This is why there have been test-runs (aka technical “glitches”) where ATM’s would be shut down, etc… Ever notice a strange charge on your credit card recently?  Mine was $8.99 a few weeks back.  Wells Fargo said that I couldn’t remove the charge since it had already posted, but I could cancel the card.  I’ve got too much tied into the card to do that for $8.99.  Probably a trial run for the upcoming “tax”.  Have you checked all of your cards for strange charges, lately? Did you know that the CFPB, formed by Obama as part of Dodd-Frank, is completely autonomous, with no oversight, as it is part of The FED?  The jurisdiction of the CFPB includes: Banks, Credit Unions, Securities Firms and much more.” (comment from a forum poster – see link above)

President Barack Obama announces the nomination of Cordray as the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on July 18, 2011

Yet another agency (like the EPA) which is questionably un-Constitutional.
