Read how the US government investigates the ruling class which owns it. I am referring to the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission report issued yesterday on it findings about the latest economic collapse. Guess what? They found the banksters, not guilty! As Smith concludes:
The FCIC report is destined for the...dustbin of history.... It is a document of and by well-meaning insiders that just can’t deal with the corruption they were supposed to investigate. It’s a psychological crutch maybe, or perhaps a denial mechanism, but it doesn’t really matter. This report is just a cover-up, the same kind of cover-up that is allowing the thieves to escape with their loot.Listen/view Michael Hudson's assessment of this report from Real News (8:28m video).
Nothing will come from the generation in power who created this mess. They just don’t have it in them. The bad guys will steal again. I mean, crime pays. Besides, who’s going to call it crime, anyway?
