A SPANISH minister has branded a London trader ‘immoral’ and ‘crazy’ after he claimed he goes to bed every night dreaming of another recession.
Finance minister Elena Salgado dismissed Alessio Rastani’s claim that millions of people’s savings would be lost within a year.
“This nutter thinks he can obtain money with this threat. It’s not only crazy but also immoral,” she told Spain’s RTNE.
The self-styled independent trader’s bizarre outburst came during an interview on BBC News in which he also claimed that ‘Goldman Sachs rules the world’.
“For most traders, we don’t really care that much how they’re going to fix the economy, how they’re going to fix the whole situation.
“Our job is to make money from it,” he added.
However, the BBC were forced to issue a statement amid claims that the interview was a hoax.
“We’ve carried out detailed investigations and can’t find any evidence to suggest that the interview with Alessio Rastani was a hoax,” the statement said.
