Greed has never been good

I am not aware that anyone has named the major causes of the current financial crisis that has our world in turmoil. Greed and lack of accountability are the causes as I see it. We will get past this. Until we do something about the causes however, trouble will come again as surely as night follows day.

Further none of the people who have acted with gay abandon and just plain stupidity have been held to account. Lets us hope that French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s words are adhered to; “Let us build together a regulated capitalism in which whole swathes of financial activity are not left to the sole judgement of market operators” He called for a new system in “which those who jeopardise people’s savings are punished.” (The Strait Times 24/9/08)
