ups and downs

Michael Sandel:

The bankers argued that a financial tsunami had caused the crisis. The question they should be asked is: If big systemic forces are responsible for the downs, isn’t it reasonable to suppose that big systemic forces are also responsible for the ups?

And if that’s true, maybe there’s a reason to question outsized bonuses in the good times as well as in the bad times.
