Some good news is , more systematic corruption is entering the mainstream, as US Senator Charles Schumer wants to change laws to prevent market manipulation by using computers housed "right next to" market trading systems to front run/trader with computers with high speed access.
The more of this type of corruption is exposed and corrected, the more optimistic I will become with US economic future. So far, these types of discussions are helpful, but not until they are instituted and enforced will I gain optimism. Cleaning up wall street trading practices, FASB rule changes previously mention, and CDS exchange traded contracts, would be a great start.
