Its Super Tuesday time in Way Off-Topic Posted February 6, 2008 Wallstreet is out of control, its screwing up our economy. It was a nice try to keep it completely privatized but I believe its time to step in and have some sort of oversight. Teeth, Wall Street (although it is inaccurate in the extreme to refer to is as an actual entity) IS completely private. In the United States companies are ALL privately owned. Either by single owners, board of directors, employees, or stock holders. The federal government has VERY limited constitutional powers in regulating private business and it sounds like what you are calling for is expansion of government power beyond constitutional bounds. That is very dangerous road to go down. Or are you calling for the nationalization of private business? That my friend is communisim.
