Traders, not bankers. Investment bankers had nothing to do with this entire crisis. For some reason our media, and therefore population, seems to think investment bankers and traders are the same people doing the same thing. One is never in a position, really, to do any wrong-doing, the other can totally blow things up every single second. One works for clients, the other works for greed.
I strongly disagree. The investment bankers were making a killing on selling the packaged mortgages. I've heard mortgage lenders testify how people from Wall Street called them looking for more and more loans to buy up so they could package them. It was greed on both ends. The mortgage lenders making the loans and selling them to the Wall Street guys, who turned around and packed them up and sold them.

Those were traders, not investment bankers.
Picking at nits here really. Traders working for all the big investment banks, who were all up to their eyeballs in this business and had entire units dedicated to it.

I hate PC gamers. They just sit around, hunched over their mouse, clicking away at their FarmVille or their MafiaWars or their other random Zynga game.



See the difference? Two may be similar, from the outside, and they may be part of the same machine, but they do vastly different things and have no real contact with each other.
What are you talking about? The biggest investment banks in the country were doing this. They directed their employees to do this. How are they not responsible for doing this?
