Do u think the rich can use their money to acquire a power such that they "play by different rules" than regular folk? In the 1930's they certainly could.
Jesse Livermore was an immensely rich speculator during the 1920's. When he left work at 8:07 AM--keep in mind police managed stoplights by hand back then--the policemen watched for his car and made sure the lights were green when he passed. On his own turf, the man never had to stop for a red light!
Those r different rules!
