With the terms of his bankruptcy at an end, his remaining creditors are simply out of luck as Walker gets ready to start his life fresh. Well, fresh with a much different lifestyle. Since the casinos had to write off nearly half a million dollars, it is likely that Walker won 't be invited back to the big money rooms anytime soon, and if he gets into legal trouble he may be looking for a public defender instead of an Italian-suited attorney, since he stiffed his legal team for over $350,000. If you think your credit card companies and banks are worried about your debt, Walker is part of the reason why. Wells Fargo just wrote off nearly $1 million of Walker 's loans.
In the late 1800’s, J.P Morgan, John Rockefeller, and Andrew Carnegie had a negative impact on society because they were Robber Barons. They treated their workers very poorly in a way that should not have happened. J.P Morgan forced his workers to labor under harsh conditions for long hours and low pay.

Cinderella Man “Any lack of confidence in the economic future or the basic strength of business in the United States is foolish,” Herbert Hoover stated when addressing the economy in the 1930’s. Sadly, the statement turned out to be false once the economy plummeted. The Great Depression took many americans by surprise, causing havoc wherever it reached. Many citizens of the United States invested everything to the stock market, and in turn were left on the streets with nothing after the economic crash of the 1920’s.
In the Great Depression of 1932, the stock market crashed which caused a lot of Americans to try to sell their stock before the price got too low. For many of the Americans, they lost all their money and became very poor. Many banks shut down due to the lack of money they each contained. In order to fix this, a plan called, “The New Deal” that was created by FDR. The New Deal consisted of many new programs to promote money to the economy so it would be back in the same cycle it was before the Great Depression.
Prices went sky-high, and high inflation only worsened the situation for many of the laborers. The first to blame was the Bank of the United States, which had stopped exchanging precious metals for banknotes. When it began to call its loans, people were unable to pay, leading to a devastating effect on the economy. The
This was a high risk high reward bargain that paid off in the end. Banks were making money off their mortgage loans they were selling off in synthetic CDO’s. These debts were actually worthless. When the housing market and Wall Street crashed, many lost their investments. These were meant to be safe investments but because of the actions of the banks, mortgage brokers and many other factors, millions lost everything.
President Hoover did try to stop the Great Depression from happening; he didn 't just sit at home and do nothing. He was concerned even before the stock market grew shaky. He believed stock market prices were too high. Nobody wanted to listen to him then, but when the stock market did crash, it was all Hoover’s fault. "The real trouble was that the bellboys, the waiters, and the host of the unknowing people, as well as the financial community, had become so obsessed with the constant press report of great winnings that the movement [stock market investment] was uncontrollable” (Blumenthal 51).

According to Grudem, it is the negative attitude toward business for any failure to solve world poverty through business. This thought emanates from client, customer, abuse by companies, often large corporations paying Hugh salaries and bonuses to the CEO, CFO, or other high ranking executives while being dishonest to its clients, or even to its employees. This is a major concern in the banking and finance industries as recently witnessed with the housing bubble collapse less than a decade ago. As a result, major business such as Leman Brothers failed, while AIG was bailed out by the taxpayers. This is about greed, and greed is a breakdown of ethics.
A housing bubble was created by banks liberally mortgaging out homes to anyone no matter their credit and bundling mortgages together and selling them to other banks. Because of how they were bundled their credit ratings never reflected the actual risk involved; this practice was unethical but profitable until the system collapsed in 2008 and caused massive losses for both banks and homeowners. The losses were so drastic that Congress voted to bail out several of the banks at the expense of the taxpayers, many of whom were unemployed and facing foreclosure. The economy today is still recovering as interest rates and unemployment continue to return to
