A friend of mine says he knows this guy personally, and he says he's the real deal.

Ye,this  story smacks of a low level psyop to discredit the whole notion underpinning the guys statements regarding the reality of who runs the show.

Everything as of now states that he's the real deal.  The Yes Men have denied any connection.

The big fuss was that this was the BBC. He hasn't said anything new a-la Max Keiser et al

"Goldman Sachs rules the world," is an expression...not to be taken in the literal sense.  Just sayn.  Tip o' the hat

I will agree with that, but it does point to the underlying reality of how powerful just a few banks are in determining world affairs.

Speaking of a few powerful banks, I saw this graphic today and thought it portrayed a powerful message:

Step Aside BBC “Trader”: Head Of UniCredit Securities Predicts Imminent End Of The Eurozone

Quote:Zero Hedge
Sept 28, 2011

Either the YesMen have infiltrated Italy’s biggest, and most undercapitalied, bank, or the stress of constant, repeated lying and prevarication has finally gotten to the very people who know their livelihoods hang by a thread, and the second the great ponzi is unwound their jobs, careers, and entire way of life will be gone. Such as the head of UniCredit global securities Attila Szalay-Berzeviczy, and former Chairman of the Hungarian stock exchange, who has written an unbelievable oped in the Hungarian portal Index.hu which, frankly, make Alessio “BBC Trader” Rastani’s provocative speech seem like a bedtime story. Only this time one can’t scapegoat Szalay-Berzeviczy “naivete” on inexperience or the desire to gain public prominence. If someone knows the truth, it is the guy at the top of UniCredit, which we expect to promptly trade limit down once we hit print. Among the stunning allegations (stunning in that an actual banker dares to tell the truth) are the following: “the euro is “practically dead” and Europe faces a financial earthquake from a Greek default“… “The euro is beyond rescue”… “The only remaining question is how many days the hopeless rearguard action of European governments and the European Central Bank can keep up Greece’s spirits.”….”A Greek default will trigger an immediate “magnitude 10” earthquake across Europe.“…”Holders of Greek government bonds will have to write off their entire investment, the southern European nation will stop paying salaries and pensions and automated teller machines in the country will empty “within minutes.” In other words: welcome to the Apocalypse…

But wait, there’s more. From Bloomberg:
