Forum Post: Who's focused on Wall Street? Where do you recommend I look for a forum/publication about Wall Street?

I've been lurking in this forum for a while, and I really like what I see, but I'm mostly interested in Wall Street reform—restoring Glass-Steagall, breaking up the banks, putting derivatives on exchanges, simplifying Dodd-Frank, etc.

What publications are focused on that sort of thing? I like this site, but it only posts about Wall Street about once a month or so, and even then the topic is kind of tangential.

Don't get me wrong—everything here is important—but it seems like this site should be named "Occupy" or "General Activism." Again, that stuff is important, but it's not really focused on Wall Street.

I'm just looking for forums or publications in addition to this one that focus on these serious Wall Street problems.

What would you recommend? Is there a separate forum on this site that's more centered on Wall Street?

I post on reforming monetary policy all the time.

Our current monetary policy is set up to give unlimited resources to the banks. Where do you think Wall Street and the big banks got the trillions from? They can't just make it out of thin air. But I know a place that can and they are in full cahoots with Wall Street and they've taken control of our government.

HR 2990, the National Emergency Employment Defense Act is full of awesome reform that restores power to the people instead of letting Wall Street continue to steamroll true economic growth.

We have bank financed politicians telling the people how giving Goldman Sachs billions and letting the banks loot the treasury saved the economy. It's bullshit.

Good point, Trevor. I was just reading more details about the Fed lending money to megabanks who would in turn loan the money to the government for a 3% return on T-bonds. Insane. The Fed wouldn't cut that deal with me...

You also can't get loans at below market rates sometimes as low as .01%

This is related content -- a massive deception by omission that severely fools the people. http://occupywallst.org/forum/higher-education-panders-to-intellectual-savagery/

Nice—I hadn't seen those Mises or Moyers links before.

The Mises article is a nice overview.

Moyers with former FDIC person, one of last sane republicans, apparently.

Glad to help. I think the Moyers link will work now.

The devolution of USA to 3rd world status has been gradual. I was in Mexico 25 years ago, and there the college graduates couldnt get decent jobs. Wages were very bad.

Now with globalization, free trade, and people want to worship the wealthy, and not question the nature and imbalance of society, things are same here, with whatmChris Hedges has a term for, throwaway zones or something like that. We are frogs in a kettle with the heat gradually rising, literally.

The 1 percent doesn't want things to change, just look at the NRA statement today, more guns will fix us. Or TEA Party not wanting to raise taxon millionaires, despite 70 percent of population wants it.

Stop, we're focused on politics right now; it seems Obama's going for a third term.
