It's certainly a crime that the white collar behaviour that lead to GFC,
and other market crashes, were either not a criminal act or that no one
I know of folks who has suicided because they've lost life savings due
to white collar crime (whether GFC style stuff, startup fraud or other).
Your apparent opinion that families have not suffered trauma, and that
they themselves didn't - no, cannot similarly suffer in any debilitating
way, is wrong.
Mental trauma is as real as physical trauma. To even allude to the idea
- let alone spell out - that mental trauma cannot *ever* be a genuinely
debilitating condition is deeply, *DEEPLY*, offensive.
