Greenspan's Body Count: The Bear and Barry Fox

Today's episode of Greenspan's Body Count is the tale of Barry Fox:
Barry Fox, a research supervisor who worked for nine years at [Bear Stearns], took a drug overdose and then jumped from his 29th-floor apartment the evening in May after he learned he wouldn't be hired by JP Morgan Chase, which was about to buy his firm. A coroner recently confirmed in an autopsy report that the death was a suicide.

Mr Fox was devastated by the implosion of Bear Stearns and the financial hit he was likely to face, says Fred Philippi, his longtime companion. After several personal setbacks, "this Bear Stearns thing happened to be the last straw that broke his spirit," Mr Philippi said in an interview.

Blameless, faceless, mid-level Wall Street managers hurl themselves off balconies while Dick Fuld, Angelo Mozilo, and Chris Dodd walk the streets as free men. If there is justice in the world, they will eventually be prosecuted. But the Godfather of the financial crisis, Alan Greenspan, never will be. Greenspan can only be punished by his Maker.
