Our Failing and Unaccountable Financial System

Anyone who has not already seen the movie Inside Job should get it from a video source and watch it at the earliest opportunity. Despite some minor errors on certain details, it does a superb job of portraying how our leading financial and governmental institutions and their executives created the economic crisis and collapse that has impoverished the nation and its people . . . and profited hugely from doing so. In addition, the film clearly shows that those responsible for the mess have not only escaped accountability but also been allowed to retain their ill gotten wealth and either to walk away with it or to go on to get even bigger, richer, and more powerful today.
