What's the diiference between a Wall Street Banker and Joe Blow....if a Wall Street Banker takes you money he doesn't go to jail

Nothing has changed much on Wall Street many of the same people are there and bad practices continue....they really hate regulation self regulation will not work as it is a conflict of interest for those drawn by the smell of money while risking others money...they still get their bonuses regardless I think the U S Government is week and Wall Street has fooled them they know best ....so the risks are the same for a cra$h again!

Really can't get my head around the fact that these people profess to know what's best for the client when all that is really happening they are just there to put the clients dollars at risk in order to get fat bonuses... How do they sleep at night obviously they just don't care...

The people in Wall Street escaped criminal negligence charges! So have not found themselves held accountable for basic fundamentally outrageous practices!...Can anyone therefore have confidence Wall Street ? I think not. Derivative instruments should be banned! Short selling should be banned! The selling of Junk Bonds promoted as triple A sound investments selling should be banned! The tax payer should not be held for the morally corrupt behaviour of others having expensive drinks on fancy bonuses while their clients are hung out to dry....

Again? We're still in a financial meltdown. This problem is getting progressively worse.

Thin k of our economy as a sick man on life support. The man has a heart attack, we revive him, but the man's health is still getting worse.

Down the road the man will have more frequent heart attacks until his inevitable death.

That analogy pretty much describes our economy.
