Go here for the full well documented and sad sad sad story!Krugman: “It’s time to start calling the current situation what it is: a depression.”
As I’ve noted in numerous, heavily-annotated posts, the truth of the matter is, today, Wall Street is receiving an EASY $200 billion per year in stealthy/obfuscated taxpayer subsidies.
As Morgenson notes in her closing comments from Sunday, Wall Street fatcats “…are being paid for taking risks that generate lush bonuses when things go well but that require taxpayer bailouts when the tide turns. Main Street understands that this is wrong and that allowing it to continue is dangerous. It’s past time that Washington did something about it.”
As Krugman reminds us, today, our near-term and future well-being relies upon responsible government action, both here and abroad, coming to pass—not just in words but in actions–NOW.
I cannot help but get a sense that we are witnessing a massive historical failure of government, not just nationally, but globally. At then end of the day, compared to the suffering it will bring, it won’t matter who’s to blame.
We are all in this together. It may be the greatest bipartisan sentiment of all. Dare I say it…even a lot of Republicans, and perhaps a few bankers, will understand that.
