101 Resignations From World Banks and Counting (Updated List Feb. 29th, 2012)

http://americankabuki.blogspot.com/2012/02/updated-22912-thanks-kauilapele-for.html 

UPDATED 2/29/12

Note: I have extensively edited this list, re-verified links, shortened URLs to make this list more readable. Its grown very rapidly over the past week and was getting unwieldy in its prior form.  In some cases certain middle eastern bankers and European private bankers have managed to have their names removed from smaller blogs and news sites so I have updated those cases to larger news organizations less likely to bow to pressure. At the time of this posting all URLs listed work, I do not guarantee they always will.  I have also added missing names (in bold) and those URLSs where more than one person was resigning I expanded the item to have one line each, since everyone who copies this to their blogs (wow did this spread far and wide!) views each instance as one banker resigning I thought I’d make this listing more reflect that viewpoint.  I do not know under what circumstances these individuals have left their positions, I make no judgement on that. I just find the timing of so many resignations extremely curious and a bit of temporal marker in history of very high significance. No one should assume I make any judgement about the character of these people. I frankly don’t know their reputations except for a few rather famous ones.  I don’t mind if you re-blog this listing, information wants to fly free, just do me a favor of including http://americankabuki.blogspot.com and this header when you do so.  Save yourself the wear and tear on your karma. Thanks Kauilapele for the heads up on the broken links.
