Calvin Trillin: What the Gekkos know

A YEAR LATER, LITTLE
CHANGE ON WALL STREET

--Headline in the New York Times

Derivatives are with us still,

Unregulated. All concede

That Congress doesn't have the will

To curb a system based on greed.

So once again, the debt will grow,

Inflated salaries will soar.

Collapse? So what? The Gekkos know

We'd simply bail them out once more.

Comments

The situation is not cool, yet it's cool of you to share the thought-provoking post! You know, the message really hits hard. I guess that's why I'm a Californian first, and an American second. By primarily concentrating on our own California issues, couldn't we positively influence others states, then the world, with the innovative progress we make?
