Gang Of Spielers

This is just some information about the derivation of the term “gang of spielers.” A spieler’s job is to hype up a sleazy product to make it seem like more than what it really is. Traditionally they’ve been used to pump up the audience for striptease shows. The character of Frankie Fane in the movie The Oscar starts off as a spieler. It’s hard to watch this movie and not get the sense that Frankie is a pretty good representation of what financial services are all about. There are spielers all over the place but the ultra-dense concentration of them on Wall Street earns them the title of being the spieler capital of the world.
