Across the Ivy League the young people whom our Wall Street division once subjugated with ease are becoming troublesome. Our good friends at Goldman Sachs, to cite one example, have been forced to cancel their recruiting trips to Harvard and Brown. At Princeton, 30 students masquerading as job applicants entered a pair of Wall Street informational sessions, asked many obnoxious questions (“How do I get a job lobbying the U.S. government to protect Wall Street interests?”), rose and chanted a list of charges at bankers from JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs, and, finally, posted videos of their outrageous behavior on YouTube.

It could be that the up-and-coming generation of well-educated, well-bred, well-connected elites want nothing to do with Wall Street, which means that those megabank corporations that have been living on the taxpayers dime may find that they no longer have the potential for long-term continuance of lax government policies allow them to rob the vast majority of citizens of their hard-earned money.  Or it could be that the current crop of Ivy Leaguers is holding out for a larger share of Wall Street’s illicit gains.
