"We live in a time when billions of dollars of market capitalization can be wiped out by a single political speech, statutory command, or regulatory decree; and those politicians consume our lives as much as our dollars . . . "
Those are the words of Jim Woods, describing the circumstances and reasons that motivated him to decide to "go on strike".

How many of "those politicians" are motivated by cowardice? How many by power-lust? How many by destruction for the sake of destruction?

How many by a sincere commitment to altruism?

Whatever their motive, the effect on our best and brightest remains the same.
