Jeff-Good piece but I'd count the accountants, who function as Wall Street aiders and abettors as much as the lawyer, lobbyist and PR flack classes do. The big accounting firms' overt incompetence, covert coverups and brazen self-dealing were an instrumental part of numerous Wall Street collapses, from Enron to Lehman. As Yves Smith recently pointed out in Naked Capitalism, their vast cadre of pretend-we're-wearing-whiteshoes lobbyists and lawyers continues to help lead the financial deregulation fight in 2017, seeking further delays and dilution of yet-unfinished SEC and other rules required by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act enacted a full 15 years ago in the wake of Enron.
