A recent study found that 10 percent of people who work on Wall Street are “clinical psychopaths,” exhibiting a lack of interest in and empathy for others and an “unparalleled capacity for lying, fabrication, and manipulation.” (The proportion at large is 1 percent.) Another study concluded that the rich are more likely to lie, cheat and break the law.
Hey, I know. Let's put these clinical psychopaths in charge of everything - from government at the local, state and federal level to social policy via "philanthropy" to education to the environment to the media to...
Well, you get the idea.
No wonder the world's in such bad shape.
Maybe it's time to stop worshiping wealth and material goods and start valuing occupations in our society other than the criminal activity the psychopaths and sociopaths on Wall Street do on a daily basis.
Oh, and putting some of these psychopaths from Wall Street in jail, where they belong, wouldn't be a bad idea either.
