Bill Moyers & Co.: Matt Taibbi and Yves Smith on Mafia Banking

submitted by Gabrielle Price
Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi and Yves Smith of the website Naked Capitalism
A must watch installment of Bill Moyers & Co.
On the heels of two new articles written by these stellar economic reporters, it was quite a treat to find both of them on Bill Moyers to discuss the nature of the fraudulent bank system that can truly no longer be ignored, spun or blamed on anything other than their mafia tactics.
Remember this video when you hear anyone in US media pointing fingers at European banks, another country, some ‘terrorist’ or any one person in the sham of a two party system.  Both parties are complicit in allowing these banks to continue their criminal activities at the expense of the entire US economy…and the global economy which can no longer be propped up.

This Is What Democracy Looks Like / Iceland Debt Jubilee

I don’t have to wonder why we don’t hear about this in the US mainstream media. ~ GP

The government of Iceland has forgiven the mortgage debt for much of its population. This nation chose a very different way of stopping the crisis from the rest of European countries. It decided to hear the requests of the population and to put politicians and bankers on the bench of the accused three years after their financial excesses would sink one of the most prosperous economies in 2008.
