As reported by Bloomberg, a recent RealClear Opinion Research survey found that 45% of Americans blame Wall Street for making American Dream harder to achieve. 26% blamed "the free market." Would be interested to know Sam's take on this as a former employee of "Wall Street."

I hear this all the time also.  I think it is just jealousy or mis-information.  It's not like there is less money available for others....

Maybe just the general plot and conclusions in the movie The Big Short?

Jealousy is certainly on the list.
