Wolves in Sheeps Clothing

Captain Renault: I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!

[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]

Croupier: Your winnings, sir.

Captain Renault: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.


--- Scene from Casablanca

What do you think about the revolving door of people who presided over the Wall Street debacle (including at the Fed as per oversight) is now appointed in government positions overseeing the same financial sector? Don't you think they'll repeat their failures (incompetence) or is it that it takes a thief to catch a thief (of a nefarious nature)?

Special Note:

I was very uneasy when I saw Bob Rubin's dominant cameo (in a positive light) in the I.O.U.S.A. documentary. Here is the architect (with Alan Greenspan, Phil Gram and others) who is responsible for the Wall Street debacle (including the Fed's lack of oversight - didn't see it coming/didn't know there was gambling/didn't drive the money changers out of the Temple). Now, he and others are being praised as possible picks for the Treasury Department and for key economic advisor positions.
