Despite the events there have still been many people who have profited from the current compensation system: "Our indiscretion sometime serves us well/ When our deep plots do pall/ And that should learn us/ There's a divinity that shapes our ends/ Rough-hew them how we will."
A little introspection by regulators (I will omit the rather obvious Hamlet quote!) would be appreciated.
In the final scene Horatio says "And let me speak to the yet unknowing world/ How these things came about. So shall you hear/ Of carnal, bloody and unnatural acts/ Of accidental judgments, casual slaughters/ Of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause/ And, in this upshot, purposes mistook/ Fall'n on the inventors' heads."
Sadly one letter in the above must be changed, it is not the "inventors" who suffer at the end of this modern-day tragedy, but instead the "investors."
Something is rotten, and not just in the state of Denmark.
