That is the very least OUR “regulators” can do for us. Per TNR today (Aug 20 issue):

Wall Street Should be Thrilled with the Government's Billion-Dollar Settlements

“For destroying trillions in wealth and thousands of jobs, banks will get a write-off.” No criminal charges, no civil complaints.

“Justice Department has permitted the banks, for a price, to bury their sins.” Too Big To Fail gets a clean slate on the public record.

“In the name of deference, convenience, or something darker, the Justice Department is letting” financial crisis criminals skate.
