Who's to blame?

Who's actually to blame for the economic crisis? The Investment Bankers, the last Labour Gov, the US sub-prime mortgage sector, the Euro Zone fiasco or the millions of ordinary folk who just got used to having what they wanted, when they wanted it - all on a credit card? :unsure:

Don't let the politicians (of all persuasions and both sides of the pond) off the hook either. :wink: :wink:

A combination of all the above perhaps. Think we are also to blame - spenders; voters; share-holders and the like. Isn't there a famous saying (needs a word change?). For evil to flourish all it needs is for good men to do nothing".

 

Often wonder why we always need a scape-goat for anything which goes wrong.

 

Happy days

The reason I asked is cos those that actually caused this mess don't appear to be the ones that are being made to pay for it. Bankers are still getting their bonuses and golden parachutes, when imo they should be hanging from the lamp posts in Canary Wharf. :angry:

I've always wanted to know...how does an exception prove a rule?

 

What it means that as a rule certain conditions apply on very rare occasions something will happen that breaks that particular rule. The fact that it is a rare occurrence proves that the rule holds true.

 

As an example. the area around Daresbury and Moore is a very quite area the exception being once a year when the Creamfield festival is on which proves the rule.

 

hope that helps clear that one up.
