You know, the other day, when I remarked that Politico's story "another piece in a continuing series" of "Wall Street people whining," I wasn't kidding. A whole lot of times, actually.
Wall Street is sad, and its recent record-setting profits are no comfort. Should I begin by assuaging their fears? If we define "pro-business" as "a policy that would allow investments to be made in an actual physical business, spurring economic growth and jobs development," and not "policies that allow Wall Street to return to a regime of creating non-productive casino games based upon the amount of moneydust that can be leveraged from rubbing two ten-dollar bills together to create an ornate daisy-chain of swaps," then we are never going to issue a discouraging word!
