The Truth Behind the Financial MeltdownSubmitted by jeff34761 on Sat, 02/27/2010 - 12:16
ON SEPTEMBER 18th, 2008 at 2:00pm in the afternoon, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve and the Secretary of the Treasury went to the White House and Capitol Hill and told the leaders of our government that our economy was about to meltdown, the world economy was about to meltdown, and we would have complete social meltdown if something was not done to stop it and stop it now.
Generation Zero (Trailer)
The movie depicts how Wall Street investment houses went from being fiduciary partnerships to publicly traded stocks, this enabled the former partners to evade personal responsibility and liability for huge risks and still take unimaginably large profits for a prize. Stockholders and taxpayers got the bill when Wall Street made risky investments that went bad, but investment brokers got to keep their mansions and airplanes while the rest of us suffered great losses.
Featuring experts, authors, and pundits from across the political spectrum, Generation Zero exposes the little told story of how the mindset of the baby boomers sowed the seeds of economic disaster that will be reaped by coming generations. Coming soon to a theater near you, Generation Zero is a must see for anyone that what to leave America a better place for our children and grandchildren.
Below is an excellent interview the the movie’s producers and Sean Hannity. It runs about 45 minutes and other than Hannity trying to access most of the blame to just one political party, its one of the best interview I’ve seen on his show, ever.
Clearly Capitol Hill as a whole is corrupt and there is an inextricably linked network between Capitol Hill and Wall Street. Perhaps the release of Generation Zero will wake up the American voters to the fact that the country has been sold out by the incumbent political pontificators on both sides of the aisle who are apparently incapable of any forward thinking fiscal responsibility. We Americans had better realize we have to buckle down and make some very serious decisions about which direction the country is headed to, or risk being the first generation of Americans to leave our children a “once great country” that is much worse off than when we inherited it. I for one think its time to throw all the bums off of Capital Hill and start over.
