I’m talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.

The richest one percent of this country owns half our country’s wealth, five trillion dollars. One third of that comes from hard work, two thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons and what I do, stock and real estate speculation. It’s bullshit. You got ninety percent of the American public out there with little or no net worth. I create nothing. I own. We make the rules, pal. The news, war, peace, famine, upheaval, the price per paper clip. We pick that rabbit out of the hat while everybody sits out there wondering how the hell we did it. Now you’re not naive enough to think we’re living in a democracy, are you buddy? It’s the free market. And you’re a part of it. You’ve got that killer instinct. Stick around pal, I’ve still got a lot to teach you.

If you’re not inside, you’re *outside*!

#2 Glengarry Glen Ross (1992). IMDB. Amazon. Torrent.

cu Al Pacino, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin, Jack Lemon, Ed Harris, regia James Foley

A-B-C. A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing. Always be closing, always be closing. A-I-D-A. Attention, Interest, Decision, Action. Attention - Do I have you attention? Interest - Are you interested? I know you are, because it’s fuck or walk. You close or you hit the bricks. Decision - Have you made your decision for Christ? And Action.

WHAT YOU’RE HIRED FOR, is to help us… does that seem clear to you? TO HELP US, not to… FUCK-US-UP… to help those who are going out there to try to earn a living… You fairy. You company man.

What’s your name?

Fuck you. That’s my name. You know why, mister? ‘Cause you drove a Hyundai to get here tonight, I drove an eighty thousand dollar BMW. *That’s* my name.

#3 Boiler Room (2000). IMDB. Amazon. Torrent.

cu Giovanni Ribisi, Vin Diesel, Ben Affleck, regia Ben Younger

I read this article a while back, that said that Microsoft employs more millionaire secretary’s that any other company in the world. They took stock options over Christmas bonuses. It was a good move. I remember there was this picture, of one of the groundskeepers next to his Ferrari. Blew my mind. you see shit like that, and it just plants seeds, makes you think its possible, even easy. And then you turn on the TV, and there’s just more of it. The $87 Million lottery winner, that kid actor that just made 20 million o his last movie, that internet stock that shot through the roof, you could have made millions if you had just gotten in early, and that’s exactly what I wanted to do: get in. I didn’t want to be an innovator any more, i just wanted to make the quick and easy buck, i just wanted in. The Notorious BIG said it best: "Either you’re slingin’ crack-rock, or you’ve got a wicked jump-shot." Nobody wants to work for it anymore. There’s no honor in taking that after school job at Mickey Dee’s, honor’s in the dollar, kid. So I went the white boy way of slinging crack-rock: I became a stock broker.

There’s an important phrase that we use here, and think it’s time that you all learned it. Act as if. You understand what that means? Act as if you are the fucking President of this firm. Act as if you got a 9" cock. Okay? Act as if.

And there is no such thing as a no sale call. A sale is made on every call you make. Either you sell the client some stock or he sells you a reason he can’t. Either way a sale is made, the only question is who is gonna close? You or him? Now be relentless, that’s it, I’m done.

Boiler Room e dedicat in special domnilor de la Capital Group care ma suna mereu sa-mi vanda aur, petrol, actiuni, farfurii zburatoare samd. si rezista abuzului verbal.

Astea sunt. Cum, inca nu le-ai vazut?! Ai 24 de ore la dispozitie pentru a le gasi si 72 pentru a le viziona!

Lasand gluma, aceste filme ofera o explicatie buna a crizei financiare actuale si a modului in care functioneaza lacomia in afaceri.
