How is the financial industry different? How could such important software be so shoddy? I cannot put it into my brain. It is not even close to logical.
For me, it is too coincidental to happen just now, as the crooks are being spotlighted and their chance to loot is likely ending soon (until we forget why). Yes, I do think there is that much graft on Wall Street. And, no, I cannot believe any company would allow 440 million dollar software bug to go into production -- it is ridiculous! What can be said? "Whoops"? Criminal negligence at best, I'd be lawyering up if they'd poached my investments.
So who tests sofware?
