Financial Terrorists can be one person, group of people,small medium or large corporations that can get the government to not make laws or regulations to protect the general population from their greed and corruption
When Goldman-sachs prevented our government from regulating derivatives, and changed banking laws to under capitalize from leveraging savings from 1:4 to 1:40 or more, Goldman-sachs became "Financial Terrorists" against every non 1%er on earth. These monsters make loans to people, then bet against them, then raise the loan rate until the person defaults on the loan.
