    “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies…” – Thomas Jefferson

    One can be any color and still be Jewish: it is a religion not a race. It is like you and your situation: you are a stupid bigot and racist, but you could be any color.

    @halloranedward – the gov’t has owned the financial industry since the Fed was enacted in 1913, and especially since the 1971 depeg from gold. We are far from a Capitalist country, unfortunately…

    Professional dodging, where does one get such a degree?

    “too big to fail” is a socialist term, there is no such thing in a free capitalist country. the subversives that coined the term “too big to fail” are the same ones the coined “too big” both terms mean simply “the govt does not own this industry yet”

    The entire fractional reserve FIAT banking system is a fraud and a scam!

    This is nothing more than window dressing for the ignorant public. No more relevant to the situation than rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

    You wont be getting there through Senator Elizabeth Warren, she has been actively jockeying to try to expand his powers at the Federal Reserve.

    Iceland didn’t have a problem jailing ALL the heads of ALL the banks and bailed out the citizens, who were suffering because of what the banks did. It didn’t ruin their economy, yeah things were tough for a year, but they have one of the best economies in the world, now, They refused to be part of the EU, because they didn’t want to have to deal with the banking shit anymore. I remember when the credit unions were chastised for doing far less than these banks have done. Take the banks down.

    Wait folks !
    Bernanke sais that it takes time to sleem the big banks.
    Meanwhile you bail them, you allow them to take bonuses in millions of dollars(also from your tax money), you just wait for the time when maybe Bernanke will take some measures, or he will wait for the big banks to scale down themselves.
    The Wall Street banks are the new American oligarchy, the government revolving door gave them more power, and they bought the government ideology; money and ideology are mutually reinforcing

    ”The banks are setting us up for another Great Depression with their wild gambling,”
    No kid. even your own source, Dean Bakers paper [which you FINALLY READ] states that CRA policy are an incentive for dangerous loans. CRA are not the banks fault. This is basic logic. 1+1=2. CRA=government policy. CRA=incentive for dangerous loans. Incentive for dangerous loans=08 crisis thus thanks to algebra 08 crisis=government policy. Wait algebra?!? Too complicated?
    READ before sending link.

    Good to see you began reading. NOTICE you cite an opinion article which cites an academic source who’s conclusion is the following; “We conjecture that banks are more likely to originate loans to risky borrowers around CRA examinations when they have an avenue to securitize and pass these loans to private investorsafter the exam.”
    Dean Baker didn’t refute this.
    ”The men from your NBER article are new to the field”
    Enough with baseless premise. Cite me something AFTER you read it.

  21. SaintFredrocks April 2, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

    Here is the first sentence of the next paragraph “However even for the banks to whom the CRA did apply the evidence in this paper is less compelling than it may seem.” That is “my source.” That is YOUR paper that is referenced. I would imagine even your ramblings could make sense if they were taken out of context.
    I hear that the Flat Earth Society has some openings, or are you already a member you dolt.

  22. SaintFredrocks April 2, 2013 at 3:13 pm #

    Yes the article was linked to the CEPR, but the CEPR was not the link. Dean Baker wrote the original article and he is ONE man. The men from your NBER article are new to the field at best. Have you no reading comprehension skills at all. By the way, Dean Baker is co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research. Not some schmuck like you or the guy from Singapore. The banks are setting us up for another Great Depression with their wild gambling, but schmucks like you can’t see it.

  23. SaintFredrocks April 2, 2013 at 3:52 pm #

    From the third paragraph moron:
    “It’s not clear that this gun is smoking quite as much the paper implies. First, it is important to remember that the biggest peddlers of subprime loans were mortgage lenders like Ameriquest and Countrywide. These lenders were for the most part not subject to the CRA since they were not banks (they raised money through the capital markets, not by taking deposits). Therefore the CRA was not a gun to the head of these lenders forcing them to make bad loans.”

    ”I gave you no CEPR sources”
    Yes you did, 8 hours ago you cited me the following; ‘economistsview. typepad. com/economistsview/2013/01/the­-blame-the-community-reinvestm­ent-act-industry.html’
    This article is linked to CERP & is written by men with less qualification then my NBER article.
    And yes, your source does CLEARLY state that CRA was the major perpetrator of the housing bubble. Here’s a cite from the article; ” The main villains in this story are….Community Reinvestment Act.

    What kind of drugs are you on? Why is it you idiots won’t admit you’ve lost after everything is over and done? You have no “cites”, your argument meanders at best. The link you provided was to an article from IBD’s opinion pages that referenced a paper from NBER that was written by the assistant professors listed on NBER’s pages. I gave you no CEPR sources nor did I provide any links that state the housing bubble was caused by CRA. You need to stop the drugs. YOU ARE A reSCHMUCKlican.
