Good reading though. How can the government regulate greed? It’s like telling the wind not to blow. Greed and fear. They’ve always been with us, and they always will. Trying to regulate them into little boxes will only make the problem worse. Remember – most problems start out as solutions.

It usually “works” well, economically speaking, but comes at a high cost, including the worsening epidemic of “pleonexia” — i.e., debilitating greed affecting individuals — and the boom/bust cycles that are getting more frequent and more dangerous. For a good analysis of the valuable and toxic role of greed in consumer culture, read John F. Schumaker’s essay “In Greed We Trust” in The New Internationalist magazine. The link is:

If unregulated Free Market worked well, we would not be where we are. So something must be done to prevent the greed and the stupidity. Will the first attempt to regulate be perfect? Perhaps not… but it sure is better than doing nothing and allowing the few greedy and stupid to continue taking us all for a plunge. Let’s just hope the pendulum does not swing too far and regulate too much. Terri in Washington State

Unless, of course, it is their own greed and stupidity, in which case they better get 700 billion right now to keep it subsidized, or else the world will end.
