One heck of a punch-line for Wall Street

From Chrystia Freeland in FT on the denial among top financial types on public anger:

… in the days after the Bolshevik revolution, Russia’s bourgeoisie didn’t think much had happened, either, and stock prices held steady on the Petrograd exchange. 

The full article makes a lot of sense. The denial about public anger is due to denial over one’s culpability arising out of the belief that they did nothing wrong or that they would not have done anything different. I have some thoughts on this that I hope to flesh out in my MINT column, coming Tuesday.
