Pretty Boy Floyd

The juxtaposition of 2 behaviors:

1/  Someone manipulates the stock market with a computer algorithm to skim money off the top for personal advantage

2/  Someone manipulates a welfare system for personal advantage.

Are these the same behaviors? Is one behavior more innocent than the other?

Who suffers as a result of the behavior?

"Yes, as through this world I've wandered
I've seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home. "       
(From Pretty Boy Floyd by Woody Guthrie)
