"[A]pparently, fewer young people are going to work in the industry that destroyed our economy. That’s the word from The New York Times, which reports that since 2008, 'the number of investment bank and brokerage firm employees between the ages 20 and 34 fell by 25 percent,' as banks have laid off young people and slowed college recruiting. For young Wall Streeters, this is a bummer. But for society as a whole, it’s cause for celebration because it may finally allow America to counter the destructive Gordon Gekko-ization of youth culture." (12/02/11)
