And where should "broken windows" be policed?

O'Hollern brought this up on email right after my post about the demise of James Q. Wilson and his "broken windows policing" approach to tamping down urban street life: what about Wall Street? Don't they police "broken windows" there?

The equivalent in high finance used to be called "appearance of impropriety", and, yes, more ought to be done about it. Meanwhile, economics blogger William K. Black picked up the idea independently and ran with it.
