How much, exactly, has Wall Street cost Main Street? According to Bloomberg, possibly a total of $185 billion in wages and profits—or $600 for every single American. Bankers’ lifestyles may have been undeserved and ostentatious, but they also employed a lot of people. Barbers who charged $125 for haircuts are finding themselves without clients; Wall Street restaurants have empty tables. 255,441 finance jobs have disappeared since January 2008. For each of those losses, another 3.3 jobs in other industries will vanish.
