Bank of America to be hit by Wikileaks

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As I relayed here on 1 December, Julian Assange hinted at revelations about a major US bank. Now, according to the London Times, (htp: EPJ) he says he’s going to be releasing much material next month and if its management is “responsive” there “will be resignations”.

Journalists like to hint at causative connections – Yahoo News says “Shares in Bank of America have fallen amid speculation that it was a WikiLeaks target” – but in fact according to Yahoo Finance itself, BoA’s shares have been trending down since mid-April and have actually risen slightly in the last week. Perhaps Assange appeals to the chip-on-the-shoulder Robin Hood element in the powerless scribe’s psyche.

Men reveal their ambitions in their persons, but their souls in their writing. Assange set out his agenda in a couple of essays several years ago, and if you read with attention they tell us plenty about him. If you’d like to know a little more about how he thinks, I’ve recently done a little piece here.

That’s not to say I trust banks any more. If there were no depositor insurance, I’d have my stash (accompanied by their ATM withdrawal slips) in my workplace locker or something similar. I started to do this when the banking crisis was on, and it seems the Irish are doing it now.

Buy your popcorn and sit down for the bank show overture in January. And, if Seeking Alpha commenter “Savelife” is to be believed, the whole investment and economic Ring Cycle drama over the course of 2011. Maybe it’ll be best not to have a front seat.
