Who's to blame for the economy?

Who’s to blame for the economy? This question comes from a blog title on the Christian Science Monitor website and was originally by on a blog by Robert Reich. Reich’s answer is that it is because Wall Street and big business are out to make as much money as possible.

Another answer may that most if not all of us are to blame. Most of us strive for “the good life” with lots of material and comfort things including children. In the process we consume lots of resources which cannot be replaced and do damage to the environment. This has to be putting stresses on the economy which we do not understand and probably are at the root of the recession

However, Wall Street and big business make good scapegoats.
