Ms. Tett knows both how to please her employers, and to appeal to the political paranoia of those virtuous managers of Capital, cowering under their desks, at the argued approach of a rapacious Left Wing Hoard. Some fifty floors below those once coveted executive suites. Watch Billy Wilder’s The Apartment for the full particulars on the corporate mentality: Jack Lemon as the ambitious aspirant to that executive suite, and Fred MacMurray as the nervous gatekeeper to that executive suite. A brilliant Anti-Capitalist satire! Or for less entertaining observation on the history of the evolution of American Corporate life see The Organization Man by William H. Whyte, and or The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit by Sloan Wilson.
Ms. Tett exhibits her lack of knowledge of American politics, in pursuit of her fear mongering, and most importantly the part The New Deal has played in our collective endeavors. Sen. Warren is that rare political creature, a New Dealer in the age of the New Democrats . She came from humble beginnings and rose to fame as a result of her hard work and utter brilliance. Her’s is a Horatio Alger story for the 21st Century: she in not the Clintons, she embodies the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt FDR and Ferdinand Pecora. Of the ‘I welcome your hatred’ tradition of American Politics, that Ms. Tett finds so completely uncongenial to her Conservative sensibility, or at least her attempt to inhabit it’s shopworn rhetoric.
