According to Chossudovsky:
1. Certain powerful speculators, with inside information, are able to make money by manipulating markets.
"Triggering market collapse can be a very profitable undertaking."
2. "There are indications that the Security Exchange Commission (SEC) regulators have created an environment which supports speculative transactions."
3. Short selling was used by speculators during the 1997 Asian Crisis to bring down the Thai baht, the Korean won and Indonesian rupiah.
Short selling helped cause the collapse of Lehman, Merrill Lynch and Bear Stearns.

The allegations have been made at the bankruptcy court in New York. Lehman’s creditors include most big firms on Wall Street, most of Europe’s big banks and insurance companies as well as Japanese and Chinese institutions that are owed several hundred billion dollars.
