But that’s exactly what has been going on for years. And the appalling fact is that it is very hard to stop that practice because Wall Street is making tons of money from it; everyone else is doing it, there seems to be no other viable alternatives, and it might be too late to decouple now.

Is now the last chance to change it? We will explore these questions in this episode of Zooming In.
