Sen. Bernie Sanders has come closer than anyone on the presidential campaign trail in defining what Wall Street actually does. Sanders has repeatedly stated at his rallies that "the business model of Wall Street is fraud."

That analysis is correct but abbreviated. Sanders needs to go further. It's not just Wall Street's business model that has left the United States with the greatest wealth inequality since the Roaring '20ss (a time when Wall Street investment banks were also allowed to own deposit-taking banks).

The IPO failed to materialize simply because alternative media sent the dirty details of the offering viral, forcing business media to cover the story.

Rather than being a hot new tech startup with oodles of potential, WeWork was a money-losing real estate leasing company with a grifter as its CEO. That, however, didn't stop two of the largest law firms, Skadden Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett, from representing the company and the underwriters, respectively, and it didn't stop two of the biggest firms on Wall Street, JPMorgan Chase, and Goldman Sachs, from trying to unload the dog of a deal on investors for a hefty underwriting fee.
