Well, putting the people in your line of work in front of a firing squad without benefit of jury trial comes immediately to mind, but that's probably not an idea you're ready to roll with.

I think that's rather an unnecessary comment chrisinkentucky. It shows how little you really understand how the economy and finance in particular work. You're probably the type who thinks that killing all the lawyers, or all the politicians in the country will magically do something good and you'll be prosperous and free without them, whilst not realising that you're very signifcantly more prosperous and free because financiers allow trade to happen and politicians and lawyers keep you free*.

I think the worst we could do to someone like you would be to make you live in a place with no bankers, no politicians and no lawyers. You'd quickly realise the error of your ways I suspect.

I apologise to the board for how off-topic this thread is, but it's all Rimpy's fault for asking in the first place!
