Matt Taibbi’s Latest: ” Why Isn’t Wall Street In Jail?”
From Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone:
Why Isn’t Wall Street in Jail?
Financial crooks brought down the world’s economy â€” but the feds are doing more to protect them than to prosecute them
Over drinks at a bar on a dreary, snowy night in Washington this past month, a former Senate investigator laughed as he polished off his beer.
“Everything’s fucked up, and nobody goes to jail,” he said. “That’s your whole story right there. Hell, you don’t even have to write the rest of it. Just write that.”
I put down my notebook. “Just that?”
“That’s right,” he said, signaling to the waitress for the check. “Everything’s fucked up, and nobody goes to jail. You can end the piece right there.”
