Oh man! I just finished reading a book called Griftopia - about the GFC and all the scumbags involved, and now these headlines AND Lloyd Bankfiend is on the front page of the paper with a big smirk on his face. Enough to make you want to scream.

Along with this is an article in Vanity Fair this month by Joseph Stielitz, the economist, entitled "of the one, by the one, for the one" referring ot the 1% who hold 25% of this country's wealth. He was on Democracy Now! yesterday for an extended interview by Amy Goodman. If anyone gets a chance to watch it, it's worth it.
