In the 1990’s I had a chance to work “doing” sysadmin work for Goldman Sachs. I later found out my friends worked in an industry that later morphed into the Quants.

My statement in return was I prefer to build things that people use, not do financial engineering which I see as an evil of today’s society.

For those that are religious reading this article or comment, Jesus destroyed the money changers tables at the foot of the temple. Why? Because it was the utter debasement of humanity.

Since the 1980’s we have had a Gordon Gecko moment every day … and it is appalling. Note I am not a socialist, but a capitalist, but frankly the financial servitude that has been created in this country is down right ghastly.

Thank you for taking the time to put your angst and anger and fear into words, it was very helpful.
