I was talking to a friend who got to attend a special showing of “Inside Job,” and he was saying how shocked he was.
“Why?” I said. “You get rich, privileged people in a position to make money by screwing over other people, it’s going to happen. It always has happened.”
If there’s one thing I learned back when I was a fraud investigator, it’s that there’s a class of people who don’t actually need the money they’re stealing — it just tastes better when they steal it. They get off on it.
