Body counts will certainly vary depending on the source.

There is, however, no doubt that a significant number of financial executives have taken their own lives or died under suspicious circumstances in 2014.

Evidently, many of these professionals were under tremendous stress and subsequently took their own lives. But what about those who were murdered or rumored to have been “suicided”?

Is this a dire warning of something big that is about to happen in the financial world?

Or is it simply a coincidence?

Hopefully it is the latter, but with a struggling world economy showing definite signs of instability, one can’t help but entertain the idea that it could be more.
