Listen to this:
ACT ONE. WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER WEEPS.
Ira with Planet Money economics correspondent Adam Davidson on why—even after everything President Obama has done to save Wall Street, actions which have led to record profits and bonuses—Wall Street seems ungrateful. Adam and producer Jane Feltes head out to a Wall Street bar where they’re told by three finance guys that there’s no reason to thank the President for saving their jobs. Planet Money is a co-production of This American Life and NPR News. (14 minutes)
What I learned from this segment is that Wall Street is not just unrepentant for what they have done to destroy the economy but they feel victimized for being called out for what they have done.
