Jews Need to Clean Up Their Act
In Boomerang, Michael Lewis points out the absence of Jews in the German financial community. We all know why this is so. But the problem now is that the American financial community is largely led by Jews, and it turns out to be corrupt, while the gentile German banking community turns out to be largely honest, if gullible. Not all Jews are dishonest, but events like this tend to reinforce unfavorable stereotypes of Jews. If Jews want to overcome these "Shylock" stereotypes, they need to clean up their act. Unfortunately they are dragging America down into the gutter with themselves.
