caught my eye in passing

From  the NYTimes:

"We've gone from a golden era of banking and financial services,"
said Kenneth D. Lewis, the chief executive of Bank of America as the
bank he heads prepared to buy Merrill Lynch.

"It's going to be tougher," Mr. Lewis said. "There are going to
be fewer companies, and we are going to have to be better at what we do

A "golden era" for whom, exactly?
Deregulated, irresponsible greedy bastards who have basically sacked the American middle class?
By "better" does he mean, dare I say it, responsible?
What a notion.

  3. Responsibility?! For big companies?! *blink blink* That would be the day…

  5. I believe he means better at hiding it.
