Thus far, I have learned nothing about indictments, although a lot went wrong for a long time. Future tax credits were considered capital for bookkeeping make-up. As for the firing of CEO’s and executives; not so fast, some will remain as consultions!
There are all kinds of moral, ethical, and philosophical issues involving this action, as well as political, if you consider Congress watched passively for a very long time. But in the end Wall Street wins and taxpayers i.e. our children and grandchildren, lose.
A lasting moral to this whole sorry episode is that you don’t mix government and private business. When it does happen you can expect inequities, corruption, favoritism, stealing and most any other vice you can think of.
