Ok, so something needs to be done here. The nation's economy will not belong to the people if the money doesnt. So what do we do?

Would Congress having to vote on the over 3 TRILLION the Fed has dumped to Wall St make a difference? Would it raise awareness and hence curb it? Or would it go on as usual?

Suggestions?

??? Paul Gilding: The Earth is full ???

What if we focused on sustaining the things we need, like food, and food, and what else do we need, oh, food, and then slowed down on everything else? Do we really need to keep running desperately nowhere? Are 10 million plastic figures of sponge-bob that important?

Out of the corner, & Stop whining

Cut tax/debt for the working class, raise tax on the wealthy, reward in-sourcing/penalize outsourcing, pass the jobs bills. pass a living wage & cut the defense budget 50%.

That's what needs to be done.

I just know if the government and federal reserve gave me a trillion dollars, like they did to Bank of America, for just one example... then I'd be doing fine. I could even use that trillion to turn a profit as simply as putting the money on deposit... and then pay the government back and the politicians I financed would just say giving banks unlimited resources saved the economy. Let's not even get started on where fractional reserve banking came into play.

Take Goldman Sachs for example, they gave millions to campaigns, got over 10 billion from the government, and the politicians they financed said giving them that money saved the economy from a crisis they created to get money and dispose of bad gambling debts.
