DemocracyNow.org - A prominent Wall Street analyst predicted this week that not a single top executive at Goldman Sachs will face criminal prosecution for the company's role in causing the financial meltdown of 2008. "I think there is a genuine sense out there that there are two sets of rules: One for big and powerful institutions that are deemed to be too powerful to fail, and the rest of us, Main Street," says Gretchen Morgenson, the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times business reporter who has written extensively on how the U.S. government has failed to prosecute any of the top figures who played a role in the economic crash. Democracy Now! interviews Morgenson and Joshua Rosner about their new book, "Reckless Endangerment: How Outsized Ambition, Greed, And Corruption Led to Economic Armageddon."
