I wrote this about Hillary Clinton, Wall Street, and our myths about capitalism, “The Problem with Fixing Wall Street Is It Can’t Be Fixed.” Thanks to Nico Lang, Derrick Clifton, and the rest of the Daily Dot team for their input.

An excerpt:

This invisible movement of capital, massively profitable for only the largest speculators, was eventually packaged as something everyone could access. The advent of the television/social media financial advisor—remember Suze Orman screaming at you not to have so many cappuccinos?—meant that millions of people were duped into believing that pension funds were silly and that they could all become millionaires overnight if they would just learn to watch their stocks and invest wisely.
