That's the really scary part.

Is there anyone who remains unconvinced of the crookedness and crass manipulations of the stock market?

Once, before I grew up ( sometimes think I really did) I was convinced that the Stock Market was an honestly-run business endeavor... I do not cling to that illusion any more; I have witnessed too much.
