Any small business owner can go to the wall, while a large ‘important’ bank can go to the government and the management ‘gurus’ running the show still get the golden handshake.
The only reason this continues is that the public are duped by, or very much in fear of, the financial system.
Without sounding alarmist (or popularist), only when the people (of all classes and risk-takers) opt out of the financial system will the financial system opt out of its current malaise.
