Muckraker of the Financial System

I have published on two other prominent financial websites, (as Gary A) and at I muckrake the banking system and found premeditated causes for the housing bubble and subsequent meltdown. I am married with 4 grown children.

Scott Sumner is dead wrong. There was indeed a housing bubble in the last decade. It did not, by itself, cause the Great Recession, but its crash worked to tighten the money supply.
E Keynes And Trump Tariffs
Keynes spoke to the timing of tariffs. The timing of USA tariffs could actually slow the economy, as the price to produce goes up. There could be nothing or little to show for it in economic and employment growth.

Preventing Another ‘Armageddon’: Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner Warn On Deficits, Regulation Rollback, Populism

Those three helped create populism. I am surprised Geithner shows his face in public. If the economy crashes they will blame it on bad mortgages or too much debt, even though Japan has way more debt. They won't blame the Fed for failing to stimulate the economy, which, by the way, it failed to do under Bernanke himself!

Economic Collapse Will Be The Least Of The United States’ Problems

I sympathize with the author here. The world of finance is the world that is most corrupt, most self serving, with the Fed as it's ringleader. Yet, most Americans don't have either an aptitude or a desire to understand what the banking system is doing to us. No, there are no easy answers.

On my blog I discuss the past housing bubble, the crash and future housing bubbles and scams. Offering easy money loans should be against the law but is not. Selling bogus AAA rated bonds should have been prosecuted but the scheme came from the bankers at Basel 2. You can't go higher than that.
