Sour Mood

Last July, with the economy in far better shape than now, I wrote:

I do think that if things get bad enough, eventually there will be calls to prosecute the policymakers -- both elected and appointed -- responsible for this mess. War crimes or something else might be the proximate cause for that prosecution, but economic collapse, if it happens, could create an environment in which the public demands it.

Granted, the public isn't really "demanding it" at least right now. But if the Dow was at 15,000, how much discussion would there be about war crimes?

"At least right now" is the operative phrase.
