Except profit motive is not often considered ill intent, and that's something I take issue with. More often than not, this basically goes down as something like 'bad business decisions' which carries little if any personal liability for the executives of the given company, and why exactly is that? Just because you were a decision maker at a large company, or part of a team that made a given decision, when the harm done is this catastrophic, how do you get to just walk away?

And before you say "this comes first" or "we're not there yet" just think back to the 2008 banking crisis, and how the people who got incredibly rich(er) off of the backs of working class people are still very much incredibly rich, many still working in the industry they royally screwed up in.
