We scream vitriol at the mean-faced scoundrels who come to do the banker’s bidding, but are they really to blame? Certainly, the moneylenders are at fault, as are the corrupt politicians who breastfeed upon them.

The Chinese have to put food on their table too, so it can’t be their fault. Did our own greed finally come back to haunt us?
