Wall Street protesters and greed

One has to have a lot of sympathy for all those young people whose future is looking somewhat bleak and also with those middle age folks who have lost their jobs and sometimes their homes and all those who are suffering from the economic downturn.  However making Wall Street workers into scapegoats isn’t going to accomplish much other than allowing people to express their frustrations.

Wall Street people may be greedy but their main crime is to be more successful at being greedy than everyone else. Most of us have sought the good life and we have willingly gone along with investment salesmen who have promised high returns.  If the rest of had not been so greedy the people of Wall Street would not have been so successful.
