I walked into the Ballentine Investment Institute inside the Whitman School of Business today, and the head of our E-Club, Bob Smith asked me if I’d seen CNBC's Rick Santelli’s call for a new version of the Boston Tea Party.
As reported in The Atlantic, and other places, Santelli said, “We're thinking of having a Chicago Tea Party in July. All you capitalists that wanna show up to Lake Michigan, I'm organizing. We're gonna be dumping in some derivative securities, what do you think about that?"
Since Rick was reporting from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, perhaps he could be the next U.S. Senator from the troubled state of Illinois?
