Throw crooks in jail, fire dummies

Maddox, Mark E.
October 2008
Indianapolis Business Journal;10/27/2008, Vol. 29 Issue 34, p13A
The author offers commentaries on the financial crises in the U.S. and suggests solutions in preventing the crises from happening again. To him, the $700 billion bailout plan of the government may be necessary, but said it will be of no use when there are no real changes on the financial system and the people running the system. After analyzing the systematic problem in the system, he said violators should be punished and people behind the crises should be fired and replaced with honest people.
