Meet the Real New Boss

Just when I think that the level of federal corruption can't get any more blatant, our officials outdo themselves. Today, the Wall Street Journal published an article about Larry Summers, Director of the National Economic Council and Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, which provides a detailed account of how completely captured the government really is. The WSJ obtained a copy of Summers' SF278, which is the Executive Branch Personnel Public Financial Disclosure Report, that clearly demonstrates that Wall Street is dictating our economic policy. (As if more evidence was required.) The pdf can be dowloaded from the WSJ or from here. I think it is a fair statement to say that the US government has digressed to being the public relations and collections departments of Wall Street.

  1. Gotta love those speaking engagements...

  2. No fooling. Hell, I'd be more than happy to talk anybody for a mere $60,000.

  3. Heck, I'd undercut you for half that and talk for twice as long ;-)
