If we blame the slimy people who rose to the top, and we drop them in the ocean but don't change the system, a new crop of equally slimy people will rise to the top. There's a very large supply of slimy people compared to the number of top spots at big companies.

The system needs to change so that sliminess actually decreases shareholder value. When the time horizon for evaluating shareholder value is days, I don't see how to do that at all. If the time horizon were several years, I think it would happen automatically in spite of the efforts of the slimy.
