Where’s the outrage?
I don’t have much to add to Larry’s post about Eliot Spitzer’s persecution (and non-prosecution) of AIG and Maurice Greenberg, or to Larry’s ongoing crusade against the criminalization of agency costs. But I just can’t resist registering my outrage. How can this sort of thing not make your blood boil? Other than a few lonely voices clamoring in the wilderness of the blogosphere, where is the outcry? I’m not suggesting that those who are enraged by politicized prosecutions in other spheres should take up this cause, but a little sensible appreciation among the rest of us for the costs here would be nice. And while I’m thinking of it, let me add to Larry and Tom K’s despair about the egregious prosecution of Jamie Olis.
