One of the great things about the meltdown of the last few years? Smart people, people with insights into government chicanery, people with insights into the hand selected winners — are all out in front of the story talking about it as it happens (and nailing the bad guys when appropriate). That’s awesome.
I think we have reached the point where it will be harder and harder for government favorites (for example, Buffett and Goldman) to cut slippery deals with no repercussions — ever again.
Too much light shines these days.
And that might be the silver lining in all of this.
