"Wall St" is full of greedy unethical people.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Some of the most honest, decent, humble, hard working people I have ever met work in this industry.

Wonder if the 80-20 Principle (Pareto's Law) applies to Wall Street?  80% corrupted by money/power/hubris ("some"= 20%) - not bought) ?  Believe the same Principle may apply to National Politicians (probably 80% corrupted/compromised by Special/PowerfulInterest getting elected and staying in power) ? The Record speaks for itself - need reforms both areas !

A world leading financial market institution otherwise known as as Wall Street located in New York may connote different meaning to different persons.Fundamentally,the ethic of business should rise above other things.However, for those that see Wall St as full of greedy people with gross un ethical conducts must have suffered from a bitter experience.Nevertheless, there are some persons that still hold tenaciously and guide jealously the ethics of business which I guess you have had contacts with one of such persons.In which case,judgements must go with caution.
