How the Financial Sector Servant Became a Predator / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam K. Black writes: Financial Systems Five Fatal Flaws

Afterwards we were returning to the hotel through a neighborhood best described as poor, but not disreputable. While our cab made its way down a side street, a radar gun-wielding policeman leaped out of the bushes down the block, pulled the trigger, and waved our immigrant cab driver to the curb. The offense, we soon learned, was going five miles an hour over the speed limit in a school zone… well after school was out and with no other children in sight.
