“It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness.” This second, lesser-known line from A Tale of Two Cities has never felt more applicable when you read about the two most notable cases currently going on in New York City. Sam Bankman-Fried and Donald Trump are the most recent individuals to go on trial for fraud and though the cases are vastly different, there are a few parallels we can draw to show how they both ended up in court. Both men grew up being idolized by their parents and exuded an I’m the winner/better than you attitude throughout their career; and while they may have been financially successful in their fields, that same smarter-than-you attitude landed them in a gigantic mess despite warnings from teams of lawyers. Host Jack Russo and Professor Robert Acker discuss the massive breach of ethics used to generate wealth.
