    What would his acronym be if he traded on the floor -- I'm guessing GOD.

    Thought of this too -- think of the cash he could make trading weather derivatives !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Solomon was the big time trader, horses and chariots is what he specialized in. He would be in GM today.

  3. Absolutely -- he'd be ruling the ag complex, too. Short some corn during a drought, and then call in a 3 am rainstorm.

    jesus would not trade, he was firmly aginst the money changers in the temple. It is aginst early church law to lend or borrow money at intrest--- so he sure would not have been a margin trader and currencys are out for the above reason. During the middle ages the jews became the bankers because they are not forbidden usury like the true followers of jesus, hence the stereotype.

    IMO if the world followed the teachings of jesus there would be no free market, and surely no exchanges. hello feudalism

  8. Matt 25:15-18 To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money.

    Is the message here that when God is handing you a new talent to trade with,don't bury it. A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are for.

    Actually, Judaism does have stringent and specific restrictions against usury. The reason they became banker was because they were barred from owning land, and the society was agrarian at that time.

    Jews were forced into the situation; and proved to be good at it. HENCE, the stereotype.
