Everything you said makes perfect sense. However, people look for someone else to blame when their going gets tough and people in the finance
industry, like bankers and currency traders, are easy targets especially since few personally know people in this industry.
That said, people in positions of greater influence over the lives of others should be required to exercise greater caution and responsibility in
their actions. The laws and regulations are only part of that requirement. The society at large should not condone reckless actions by people in
positions of influence even when the going is good
. A society that rewards and encourages reckless actions when the going is good or the price
is being paid by people in other societies has no reason to expect a different behaviour from those in positions of influence when a majority of the
society end up at the receiving end of those reckless actions.
