  • Gordon Gekko Reborn

    In the 1987 film Wall Street, the character Gordon Gekko famously declared, “Greed is good.” His creed became the ethos of a decade of corporate and financial-sector excesses that ended in the late 1980’s collapse of the junk-bond market and the Savings & Loan crisis.

    Well, not everyone. A number of prominent scholars warned long before the meltdown of 2008 that something awful was approaching. Greenspan and his successor, Ben Bernanke, chose to ignore the alarms.
