Looking for a “Containment Dome” . . . . for Wall Street

See if this sounds familiar:

First came the explosion and melt-down.

Next came the after-effects: millions of innocent victims, sickened and poisoned by the fast-spreading pollution.

Finally, tardy and tepid, came the containment and clean-up efforts — entrusted, incredibly, to the same despoilers whose negligence and greed caused the spill.

BP’s oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico?

Try, Wall Street’s 2008 Melt-Down and after-effects, still causing shock waves in financial markets and the global economy two years later.

The only real difference I see is that, at the moment, the authorities are making a serious effort to staunch the pollution . . . in the Gulf.
