Toxic Assets Getting You Down?
The big banks on Wall Street have blown a hole in the economy that will take many years to repair. Since the recession began in December 2007, the number of unemployed Americans has risen from 7.6 million to 15.1 million. The formal unemployment rate is rapidly approaching double digits and many of these lost jobs are being permanently shipped overseas. Americans are losing health care benefits at a rapid clip and the historic stimulus package passed by the Obama administration is beginning to run out of steam. We are in a big hole and it is going to take big ideas to climb out of it. The goal of our www.BanksterUSA.org website and our larger “Real Economy Project” is to simplify these complex issues and give you a voice in the debate surrounding proposed public policy fixes. As policymakers get ready to tackle much needed financial-sector reforms, your voice is essential if the needs of Main Street America are to be prioritized over the narrow interests of Wall Street.
This fully-sourced research companion to BankstersUSA.org is a collection of editable wiki profiles of the bankers, financial companies, lobbyists, reformers, front groups, issues and legislation related to the financial crisis and the bank bailout. Don’t let the Banskters write the history of this tumultuous time in America! You can help us build this library and document the people and policies behind the financial crisis by visiting the “Help Out” section below. Our motto is “fair, accurate and documented.”(About/contact)
