What is a Bankster?
Answer: The word comes from combining the word “bank” with the word “gangster” to get “Bankster” as a negative way of referring to banks, more specifically the FED, and a term often used by the economist Murray N. Rothbard to refer to banking systems that are not reliant on the gold standard. In his view, any form of banking that did not rely on gold as the standard of valuation was easy to manipulate and abuse its power.
Today the term is more frequently used as a negative for anyone involved in banking, investment banking, stocks, bonds or anything related to the FED or Wall Street. A catch all if you will for the negative form of anyone dealing with large sums of money in the role of a bank or banking.
Examples: “All of those banksters on Wall Street have bled the country dry, that’s why everything is so expensive and no one can find a job”
