Getting Constructive on the Bailout
- Voting no is not enough....we have to contribute some constructive advice....here is my contribution:
Re: An appt to speak with the Congresswoman...who is an associate member of Veterans For Peace
To:"Lane, Cara" <Cara.Lane@...>Yes, that's fine....see ya then! If you are able to do so, alert Congresswoman Capps to yesterday's editorial by Joseph Stiglitz in USA Today http://blogs.usatoday.com/oped/2008/09/a-chance-to-imp.htmlCongress is NOT getting an unbiased perspective from Paulson, he helped to create the mess when he was CEO of Goldman-Sacks and he still has interests with them. Whether considered sincere or not he should be removed from the debate as having a conflict of interest.Joseph Stiglitz http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Stiglitz and William Greider are the best independent experts on this. Greider literally wrote the books on globalization, corporate influence on political decision making and the federal reserve(see most recent articles).
For the record, I am opposed to the bailout or rescue package as they have been written and revised!
