ANALYSIS/OPINION:

It seems the big banks, bailed out by the American people, didn’t learn anything from their greedy practices (“Obama’s rich bureaucrats,” Editorial, Dec. 16).

The banks are back to business as usual. The sad fact is that the wealthy in our country do not have the insight or ability to acknowledge greed as a problem.

However, we are good at pointing out the evil in others. The Soviet Union was an “evil empire.” Iran, Iraq and North Korea are members of the “axis of evil.” But we are blind to the evil greed that runs our economic system and threatens to take us down.

Those at the top of America’s economic pyramid - individuals as well as institutions - are the ones who have to take the lead in showing us how to eliminate greed from our capitalistic system.
