I've been posting for at least a year that most of our problems are a direct result of the corruption in our system: brokers, bankers, and exchanges too. These guys have robbed all of us. No regulation? Ha ha ha ha. Go here for boring details of billions of dollars the banks have stolen from us through rigged bidding on municipal and county bonds. The dishonesty by all of us may have killed the Capitalist goose that lays our golden eggs.
