Recently, I watched a movie called The Inside Job. It was about the financial meltdown, how it happened, why it happened, and what the major repercussions will be (that last one are implied).
It talked to everyone from various professors at Harvard, to former treasury secretaries, fed chairmen, IMF Directos, etc.
It shed light on the morality of a lot of the dealings in Wall Street.
So, I ask this question, legality aside: was the behavior of the Wall Street Exec's ethical?
