Why is "saving the financial system" important?
Heck, the whole financial system is just a bunch of numbers on spreadsheets, right? Granted, a lot of spreadsheets. But it's not like any of these finance guys do anything productive; they're just parasites on people who grow stuff or make things or help people. I mean, if I've been out in the woods and a tick burrows its way into my ass, I don't try to save the tick, right? Or fix it.
And if I've fucked up all the macros on an Excel spreadsheet, sometimes it makes sense just to start over clean. So why can't we do that with the financial system?
Any particular reason other than lower grade hookers and blow for the banksters?
NOTE I don't mean to insult prostitutes. Banksters and rentiers obviously do a lot more damage.
