Wall Street Pukes On Our Shoes

Posted: Updated:

At last week's New Economy Conference, Leo Gerard, President of the United Steelworkers said that deregulating Wall Street was like leaving a 3-year-old in a candy store unsupervised for a day. When you come back the kid is stuffed full of candy, belly all bloated, with candy falling out of every pocket. And then when you are driving home the kid pukes on your shoes.

"It's time to stop Wall Street from puking on our shoes".
