The Problem With Speculative Trading

Just thinking out loud

It is common knowledge that Muslims don’t engage in speculative trading. Most, being ignorant of macroeconomics, think it is merely a religious principle. Today, we have reached a point that minor speculation can take down entire nations. Technically, gambling or speculative trading can harm only those who are invested. That’s why we don’t see anything wrong with a man losing money in a casino. What if everyone is at the casino and the amount invested is a huge chunk of a nation’s money supply? We are no longer looking an at individual gambler losing or winning. We are looking at a giant butterfly flapping its wind casing tornadoes all over the planet or a star exploding and shaking the very fabric of space with a strong gravity wave.

What is touted as diversification is really a giant game of dominoes. The more diversified (widely invested) people get, the more they are prone to fall together when the central planner wants them to. Liquidity is getting increasingly more centralized. Some are buying from corporations. Others are investing in them. These corporations invest in one another. And apparently no one sees this centralization of power. A few now have so much liquidity that they don't know where to invest. The rest have no liquidity or are in debt. Is it all a surprise? The central planner knows the secrets. He owns the casino. By showing the growth in diversified portfolios, he has lured gamblers in.

The more sewed up global markets get, the more enslaved they all get together. The greed for money will turn all humanity into slaves to the casino owner. Perhaps, this is exactly what they deserve.
