I have, in the past, compared our bigger banks (looking at you, JP Morgan Chase) to organized crime. It's hardly an original idea; in fact, only our major media and law enforcement agencies appear to have missed the parallels. Still, it's good to see someone do the work of putting the pieces together for future reference. Check out JP Morgan's rap sheet here.
The Mafia is small potatoes compared to this one bank, and while JP Morgan Chase may be first among equals, it's not the only bank that is a serial lawbreaker. Not a single banker has gone to jail. One would think that putting them there would be a politically popular move. The lack of prosecution is proof, if any were needed, that our politicians are not solely concerned with winning elections. Far more important to stay on the good side of the powerful, who will ease your transition back to the working world if and when you're voted out.
