Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi: Is Wall Street Basically Organized Crime?
An excerpt from Matt Taibbi’s interview (in the video above, go straight to 12:32 for his segment):
Max Kaiser: You’re writing all these stories about banks, and what’s going on on Wall Street. Are you writing about finance, or are you writing about crime stories?
Matt Taibbi: The lines have gotten so blurred. It’s basically an organized crime story. And that’s what I’m trying to do lately: is convince readers that it’s not an economics story, or a finance story—it’s organized crime. There’s no difference at all.
