Complete List of How Many Wall Street CEOs Went to Jail for the Financial Crisis

The Washington Post has this list on the number of Wall Street CEOs that went to jail as a result of their greedy actions that destroyed the global economy. The list has zero names on it and that's no joke. As the article explains, "it's not that federal government tried to prosecute a bunch of them but lost the cases. There were no serious efforts at criminal prosecutions at all."

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder seemed to acknowledge the last factor earlier in the year, saying that ?I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy.? (In a later hearing, he said that his comment was misconstrued and that he was arguing that no bank is in fact too big to jail.)

But that's not all there is to it.
