The 99%

Postby JoeKoomen2011 » Sun Oct 16, 2011 3:36 pm

I live in Canada, so this doesn't really affect me, but we're all following this story closely. I find it amazing that the news media in the U.S. seem to only profile people who are just angry against corporations and don't seem to be very focused.

I found these articles to really illustrate what's happening and a way to fight back.

No problem. I find it all very interesting. Apparently the November 5th move your money movement is having some effect on the big banks.

Another interesting post.

Thanks Joe.

Is anyone NOT anti greed at this present time?

I have my daily banking with one major in the UK and any savings spread around. Would not save with this bank because of the practice of NOT properly keeping you informed of interest rate changes.

Here in UK/EU if a bank goes bust you are covered for any savings in a banking group up to £80K.

Does this happen in other places?

All the best

I think here in The States it's $200K.

A nice video that explains how the housing market collapsed. 12 minutes long.
