Going, Going Galt (TM)

We were talking about arresting CEOs and the top brass of the "too big to fail" banks for what every day appears to be more and more like deliberate fraud rather than "irrational exuberance" at Eschaton this morning and Shrimplate came up with a brilliant concept for a new reality show.

Almost the entire CEO class needs a "burn notice." Take *everything* away from them; their money, their homes, their credit cards, everything. Then let them fend for themselves on the streets of Spanish Harlem or south central LA.

If they're as talented as they say they are then they should be back in the saddle in no time.
I came up with the name for the show, Going, Going Galt. (Note to Hollywood. We are trademarking this concept so don't try to steal it without compensation.)

Meanwhile, as far as the threats by some of the leading voices of the right wing noise machine to "go galt," Hilzoy has the ultimate post on that boast. Or to paraphase Atrios, where I picked up the link, "Quit yer bitchin and just do it already."

If "Going Galt" doesn't work, there's always the Lysistrata strategy. Betcha that'll work!

Not for Ann or Michele -- I mean, who would give a damn?

LOL 8pus. I'm afraid Fogg is right about that. Ewwww. I don't even like to think about it.

I'll gladly concede this to Fogg.
