Usually, in his presentations in Congress, no one understands Alan Greenspan, maybe not even the committee members.
But yesterday he used a phrase that everyone understands, "infectious greed".
To make a long story short, I firmly believe that the execs from the likes of Enron and WorldCom and others that are found guilty, should be sent to spend hard time as cell mates of, for example, a 250 lbs dude nicknamed BUBBA who's in jail for 8 years for passing a bad $400 check.
Only then will these bastards, that are by their own actions undermining the capitalist system, understand. These guys are doing WAY MUCH MORE HARM to America than is the dude that passed a bad $400 check, PLEASE!
Physical punishment of this kind is necessary. Just because they wore white collars and red ties they should not be treated any differently.
Guys! Why should they!? Because they went to business school!? For God's sake, dump them together with the general Federal prison population!
Or we may go socialist!

Not only their misdeeds are limited to America but also many parts of the world.I remember Enron first submitted its project proposal in Dec 1993 in India.All norms and rules were totally violated despite Environmental Dept's suggestions.Then many national/state level politicians wrote series of articles about how Enron's project is a must for this country.After 3 years, Rebecca Mark(the then Enron Asia Chief) admitted that Enron has spent $20 Million on 'educating Indian politicians'!!!(I hope you got the point ).Similar was the case of Xerox Corp who recently admitted that they had made 'inappropriate payments' for clearing the projects
People who accepted those payments(i.e.Indian politicians/officers)are equal Bastards by the way, but its a different story
