Banks, Privacy and Revenge
Eliot Spitzer made a name for himself attacking banks. Setting aside the legitimacy of those attacks, I find it shocking that he didn’t realize how much banks know about each one of us. It’s doubly shocking that he didn’t expect revenge.
The New York Times claimed that the “Revelations Began in [a] Routine Tax Inquiry.” I wish we had better insight into how true that is. In perhaps closely related news, “Fraud Police Buckling Under Mountains of Data.” So what kicked off this routine investigation? Was it data or voyeurism?
What does a guy need to do to get a little privacy in this country, anyway?
