->Everyone remembers the eighties tycoons, and I was typical of the breed, right down to the [[TrophyWife ex-hostie second wife]] with the tanned skin, white clothes and chunky jewellery, and a [[SpoiledBrat hopelessly spoiled daughter]] to boot, the aforementioned Rhonda. There was only one golden rule to understand, and it was this - the larger the debt, the safer you were. If you owed a bank a hundred grand, say, and you couldn't pay it back, then the bank would shut you down in an instant. But if you owed a bank a hundred ''million,'' and couldn't pay it back, then the bank itself was in danger and so would do absolutely everything to keep you afloat, including throwing more money at you to keep you afloat. And not only banks - state governments would jump in, too. Because if you folded and the bank folded, then that was a crisis and people lost jobs and [=MPs=] lost votes. So you couldn't go wrong. Debts got shuffled and hidden, annual reports got fudged, shareholders got deluded and ripped off, and the [[TheHedonist long lunches got longer and drunker and ever more desperate]].

(She, uh, killed herself three months later.) Mr. Brace disowned his gay son! Very compassionate, Mr. Brace. Mr. Ray put his mother in a third-rate nursing home and then used the profits from the sale of her home to buy an oriental rug for himself. [[AndThatsTerrible Heavens]]. Mr. Barker flew to Thailand on the company account to have sex with an eleven-year-old boy. Mr. Holtzman OK'ed the production of Mooby Dolls from materials he knew to be toxic and unsafe, because it was, '''''[[Series/FamilyFeud SURVEY SAYS...!]]''''' Less costly.

And as long as it is delivered on time and in sufficient supply, then they are content to be nothing more than figures on a ledger. You're a clever man, Jack. You know I'm right.\\
