For Wall Street so loved their money

that they sent their 50 billion dollar son, so whoever art thieved by them, shall not flourish, but uncover lawless strife.

'The industry is more or less united against Ms. Warren. With just months before the first voting begins, it is unleashing a barrage of public attacks, donating money to her rivals and scrambling to counter her blistering narrative about Wall Street'.

This fight isn't really about anger or emotion or civility. It's about power, does who have it, and those don't plan to let it go - Elizabeth Warren

Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me — and I welcome their hatred.

(snip) The American people know from a four-year record that today there is only one entrance to the White House—by the front door. Since March 4, 1933, there has been only one pass-key to the White House. I have carried that key in my pocket. It is there tonight. So long as I am President, it will remain in my pocket. Those who used to have pass-keys are not happy. Some of them are desperate.
- FDR

'Wall Street has long tried to influence American politics and generally donated to both parties, though it traditionally has been more aligned with Republicans.'

Everyone is nervous,” said Steven Rattner, a prominent Democratic donor who manages the wealth of Michael R. Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor. “What scares the hell out of me is the way she would fundamentally change our free-enterprise system.

And lo and behold, Wall Street's paper man throws his hat into the ring, following the money.

5. Principally five proposals -

 

1. Make private equity firms liable for the debts of their acquisitions, in particular outstanding pension obligations.

2. Worker representation on the board of corporations with a turnover of more than a billion dollars (the German model)

3. Use anti-trust law to undo acquisitions which can be proved (at law) to be anti-competitive The examples given are undoing Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp & Instagram, and Amazon & WholeFoods.

4. Require Amazon, Apple and Google to divest their marketplaces if they want to continue to sell their on products on them.

5. Stringent restrictions on and taxation of lobbyists.

1. and 2. are regarded as the most 'injurious'.
