I agree with your main point here, but it leaves the question... how do we get these people (corporate executives) to take even an ounce of responsibility for their actions? It would be great if someone, say, like, Megan McArdle, could use her position and expertise in the economic/finance world to crusade on this issue.
I know, I know, it's not your gig.

The fact that there is a problem does not imply that there is a solution.

So there's absolutely nothing to be done about a state of business ethics that is so bad it has nearly brought down our entire economy? Men can't be held to ethical standards? McArdle has no professional responsibility?
This isn't just wrong, it's desperate.
The post itself is nothing but a self-serving attempt to wrestle back some moral authority after championing immoral men.
