If you are a plumber and break somebody’s pipes while working on them, you are expected to make restitution.
If you are a mechanic and do further damage to someone’s car while working on it, you are obligated to fix your mistakes.
If you are a carpenter and punch a hole through someone’s door while putting it in, you are required to fix the damage or replace the door.
But if you are an agent of the government and manage, along with your colleagues, to destroy the economy of a nation, you are allowed to just turn your back and drive your Mercedes away! :)
