Like many things, probably including at this point most American institutions like the FBI etc. the stock market is so polluted and corrupt, it would be easier to dismantle it and start fresh with a new thing than fix the existing ones. In fact, it’s unlikely the current ones can be fixed.
It’s also unlikely that new ones wouldn’t be destroyed in the same way as the current ones are much like a season of soap operas would look in summer reruns. Same plot, but much faster.
Either way this exhibition of rule changing the second it works against the game-riggers should be the clarion call for all regular people to get their wealth out of the stock market. Maybe put it in metals or something less abstract. But clearly the more abstract the form of wealth, the more susceptible to soulless manipulators.
At this point the Roman system looks good to me, although even the Romans managed to screw that up by minting coins with less silver purity, and created inflationary pressures even with no abstraction beyond a silver coin.
