I'm writing because "Wall Street"  has become a parasite on our economy. No need to go into HOW --results prove it.

HOW to fix it?  --is the salient question.

To even begin any real fix, we all must understand how money comes into existence, AND change that process. Nothing short of that will actually make the necessary difference in preventing Wall Street from continuing to suck the life from our economy and use the proceeds to co-opt our democratic process and any leaders of business or politics who might in good conscience try to initiate real change.

Reining in their self-pay practices is only a good start.
