Great article you mention…*Too Big to Jail” was interesting perpective and insight as to why no criminal charges hasve been laid to date… here is one reason, when comparing to the S&L schemes.

“This time, lending executives may have encouraged the making of bad loans, but they generally did not personally approve the loans, Tillman said. They didn’t send emails telling the troops to make fraudulent loans but paid big commissions to loan offers who made risky loans. Then the executives were able to reap huge bonuses for making the company look so profitable.”
