Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Now change the word “greed” for “power” and that’s what we have with the Banks and Wall Street. BTW if anyone out there can still add, YOU CANNOT increase your profits quarterly (as Wall Street demands) forever, it’s impossible. What’s wrong with a company making a steady and sistainable”yearly” profit and maybe keep some jobs in America”??? The idea of buying stocks for a long term profit and investment has become completely corrupt, WHY? Because neither the Brokerage houses nor the Salesmen think anything is “Long Term” anymore.
