After spending the last decade touting their protected status of either “too big to fail” or “too big to jail,” the world’s largest banks, operating in the heart of the financial district of New York, have been given the greatest gift imaginable by the Justice Department.

Once upon a time, we lived in a nation which recognized and upheld the Rule of Law. It is no long shot to attribute decades of unparalleled prosperity to the strict adherence to that Rule of Law.
