Wall street no longer provides capital, it consumes it. America now is a country that specializing in doing nothing except shifting money and securities from one pocket to another and calling it commerce. It is'nt. If it was, employment would be higher and the ability of someone to start a new business would be easier. The simple answer is that Wall Street made so much money and still has it that they are the only deep pocket around and they care only about themselves. So, you can't get a mortgage or a small business loan, but you can borrow the money to buy another company, as long as the money, the profit, the principal and the prospects stay on Wall Street.
