        architect/mover behind US financial DE-regulation and loosening of common sense controls.
        When his nefarious work in the groves of the US Capitol was over (less profitable?) he promptly retired and went straight into the arms of the Swiss banking firm of UBS as Vice Chairman of the Investment Bank division.

        Current employment

        As of 2009, Gramm is employed by UBS AG as a Vice Chairman of the Investment Bank division. UBS.com states that a Vice Chairman of a UBS division is "...appointed to support the business in their relationships with key clients."[34] He joined UBS in 2002 immediately after retiring from the Senate.[35]

        We all know what happened afterwards.
