Matt Taibbi pinpoints the real cause of the financial meltdown - the complete immorality on Wall St:

These Wall Street players are enormously compensated, which supposedly


means that society highly values their work and is willing to pay them


a premium to do it. Having been given that kind of responsibility and


trust, these assholes should not then force us to police them as


tightly as we police those who we

expect

to steal from us,


like third-rate car salesmen, telemarketers, hookers and three-card


monty dealers. With that kind of money they should be setting an


example. We are paying them as though they are leaders of society, so


they should lead. Instead they ripped us off like common criminals. I


mean, the level of morals here is astonishing. In my entire life I’ve


never met a drug dealer who would even think about trying half the shit


that banks like Goldman Sachs and Citibank pulled during these years.
