    Watch the special The Crash of 1929.

    They don't specifically bring up the sexist angle (although I'm sure it was used back then). But the methods to get people's greed juices flowing, the media hype, everything they used from the eighties to 2008 was the same crap they did in the 1920s. Oh, minus judicious rewriting of the tax code to push suckers investors into almost mandatory contributions.

    And amazingly enough, the story ended the same way.

    What's that definition of insane again? Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result each time?

    Wall Street can go fuck itself.

    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons... for thou art crunchy and good with ketchup.
