With financial regulation reform the next big thing coming out of Washington, I thought it would be fun to watch that oldie, but goodie — “Wall Street.” Great movie.
Michael Douglas as Wall Street raider Gordon Gekko delivered one of the classic lines of cinema history –“Greed, for the lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works.”
Gekko’s doublespeak carried the day in that scene, but by the end of the movie good triumphed over evil.
Will the same be said when the current battle over financial reform ends?
