Wall Street: War’s Over

I’m sure Wall Street still has plenty of things to worry about.  What I can’t get past, though, on this wonderfully blatant cover, is the fact that the benjamins represent the middle finger and one giant FU to government, Main Street and accountability.

I also appreciate someone calling the crisis (therefore, the battle over credible reform) so we can stop pretending anything is going to change, and we can save ourselves from asking: why didn’t we do anything after the last time?

Lastly, the way the machinations (and even, many of the faces) of Wall Street lacks transparency, I like how this guy remains unidentifiable — except, of course, for the smirk.
