Dylan Ratigan: The Wall Street Heist Of 2010 – The Biggest Bank Robbery In The History Of The World
The Great Bank Heist of 2010
Commentary: Wall Street wins, Main Street pays — again
BOSTON (MarketWatch) — This was the year America finally took on the power and greed of the Wall Street banks. And the banks won.
They dodged the bullet of real reform, probably for all time. They bounced back to post huge profits, helped by legal theft from the middle class. They completed their takeover of both political parties — and bought themselves a new Congress even more pliable than the old one. Middle-class America is flattened, devastated and broke. The bankers that caused it all have escaped punishment. They’re raking in huge profits. Oh, and the tax cuts just got extended for high earners, too!
