Barack organizing the community: Computer designers – In! Derivatives traders – Out!

Posted by danishova on May 3, 2009

Following up on an endless populist theme that Wall Street and Bankers are vultures, he  is getting more specific about what careers are acceptable.  AP reports:

Wall Street is not going to play as dominant a role in the economy as regulations reduce “some of the massive leveraging and the massive risk-taking that had become so common,” President Barack Obama says.

The changes in the role of Wall Street and the huge profits that came from that risk-taking could mean other adjustments as well, Obama said in an interview in this week’s New York Times Magazine.

“That means that more talent, more resources will be going to other sectors of the economy,” he said. “I actually think that’s healthy. We don’t want every single college grad with mathematical aptitude to become a derivatives trader. We want some of them to go into engineering, and we want some of them to be going into computer design.”

It’s amazing how much he knows about career paths, what with his utter lack of experience in the private sector. He must be a genius or something.
