Moyers & Company: Why Wall Street May Be Getting Off Easy (Enhanced DVD)
Bill Moyers asks Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gretchen Morgenson about the deceptive actions of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon and Bernie Madoff. Moyers also touches on criminal energy market manipulation, and mentions Chinese official bribing, and he questions what this tells us about American capitalism. Are these prominent Wall Street men right in what they've done, or are they getting off too easy?
You'd think this would be an easy question for American citizens to answer. However, any time Wall Street lies are exposed, people are often divided on important issues. Still, money manipulation has even put people out of their homes, and banks are under investigation for both civil financial and mortgage fraud among other crimes.
Does criminal activity have any place in trying to save one's bottom line to make more money? The problem is, what America doesn't pay attention to in the news could hurt everyone. Of course, there's also the argument on the other end of the nature and seriousness of the crimes actually committed.
