I came across this movie trailer on a film about Wall Street’s crimes that led in part the the financial crisis.

The updated total bailout commitments add up to over $8 trillion now. This translates into a monetary base increase of 75 percent over the last two months. This money does not come from some rainy day fund tucked away in the budget somewhere – it is created from thin air, and devalues every dollar in circulation. Dumping money on an economy, as they have been doing, is not the same as dumping wealth. In fact, it has quite the opposite effect.

The article goes on to say the the leader of Lehman Brothers made hundreds of millions of dollars since 2000. My question: How much of that will he have to disgorge now? Likely none. This is the open sewer that Washington is pouring our tax dollars into.
