For those of you who are interested in how our financial system works I suggest you go to:
counterpunch period orge (I had to change things due to yahoo's not allowing links. Use your imagination to get to the correct place. I suggest you revise period to . and eliminate the e from orge with no spaces).
Once you get to the right place click on the 4/30 article by Ellen Brown in the left column.
Ellen Brown can be “out there” at times but generally provides good information on how the banksters rig the system to their advantage and at times, some solutions.
If you take the time to read this article, I'd like to know if you found it enlightening or if I should just shut my trap and quit trying to provide data that could have a significant impact all of us.
Thanks for posting. The banking system and derivative scam the banks have gotten away with is a hot button for me. I still can't believe none has been sent to prison, or for tha matter, indicted! We need another William Black who took on the S&L's in the 90s heading an investigation but seems this adminsitration would rather bury their heads in the sand. I'veheard plenty of defenders claiming that the banks did not do anything illegal. I'm not convinced but it would take someone much smarter than me to take on the banks. Sadly, the banks run this country.
