I liked Barry Ritholtz’s comments on the recent Washington Post special report called Breakaway Wealth. My favorite quote:
Legalized theft of shareholder assets, approved by a corrupt Congress.
If you haven’t seen it yet, the Post article itself is pretty good, but its noisy formatting makes my eyes hurt.
On a related note, check out the great chart included in Robert Reich’s NYTimes oped this weekend. Nice job of assembling multiple timeseries to tell a story.
