America's Repeated Financial
An Extension of Endemic U.S. Corruption
The current housing and financial frauds, the end of which is nowhere near in sight, will inflict greater personal and financial harm upon millions of Americans than since the financial depression of the 1930, and very possibly, much worse. The pathetic aspect of what is being inflicted upon the people of the United States, and which is putting the nation in peril, is the sheer number of people complicit in either bringing it about, or who were enablers that made it possible.
Another aspect which the American people have not recognized is that the greed and corruption in the housing and financial sectors is only an extension of the corruption and cover-ups that many government insiders have been bringing to the public's attention for years via books and radio-TV appearance. And as usual, the vast majority of the people have chosen to remain unread about these matters, and when they do hear of some part of the corrupt activities, they have been either too lazy, too apathetic, too cowardly, to show any concern. Now, they are, again, paying for the decades of corruption and tragedies. And this is only ONE of the many areas of corruption and related tragedies inflicted upon them.
The constantly updated book, America's Housing and Financial Frauds, names the players in the real estate field, in the financial fields, and the members of Congress that made it all possible. And some of those members of Congress now showing the greatest outrage are the same ones whose misconduct−aided by the usual bribes from industry−brought this debacle down upon the American people.
Further, if, instead of being obsessed with trivia, more adult Americans had devoted time to reading books on serious matters, they could have helped prevent what is now probably the greatest financial crisis the United States has ever faced. with the outcome worse than the financial depression of the 1930s. This writer grew up during those days, and is well aware of the hard times ahead for millions of Americans.
To understand the broader picture, the extent of the endemic corruption, and the cover-ups, other books associated with this site must be read and understood.

Plunging Americans into Financial Ruin
The root of the multi-faceted corruption had tentacles in a series of major financial debacles that preyed upon and harmed the American people. During the 1980s it was highly publicized savings and loan frauds and starting in 2002, with the bubble bursting in 2007, it was the housing and financial frauds, the end of which may be years away (except for the privileged few in major financial houses who survived nicely with taxpayer money provided with no strings attached by Washington politicians. Even the bailout, using taxpayers' borrowed money, have provisions that bailed out many speculators that had no business being bailed out. Again, bribes to members of Congress produce results!
During this time many victims will be plunged into the depths of financial and personal despair, with some, not able to cope, committing suicide. Families evicted from their homes, living in cars, or tents, without money for food or basic necessities. Entire lives ruined, with the help of bribe-taking members of Congress and others.
Former federal agent Rodney Stich lived through the financial depression of the 1930s and know how people suffered. His broad insider knowledge of the endemic corruption responsible for many American tragedies motivated him to write two books on the matters:
America's Housing and Financial Frauds.
Congress and Other Cesspools.
Included in the contents of America's Housing and Financial Frauds are the misconduct of such people and groups as:
Real estate sales people,
appraisers, mortgage brokers, lenders, and Wall Street financial
Wall street financial houses.
Credit ratings agencies that
inflated the safety of the product in order to receive millions in
Government regulators who were in
bed with the Wall Street firms, and regulators involved in the
revolving door syndrome, as in the FAA and other government
Exotic financial products,
including CDOs, CDS.
Effect of huge bonuses causing
financial personnel to make huge gambles with other people's money,
so as to show a huge paper profit at the end of the year, knowing
that the financial products would fail.
Buyout firms that loaded acquired
companies with huge debt−which
brought them fabulous profits−knowing
that the companies would go bankrupt when business slowed down.
Well-known members of Congress who
accepted millions in bribes to repeal prior legislated safeguards
that brought about the savings and loan and present housing and
financial debacles. Or who passed legislation allowing fraudulent
financial practices to occur. And who, thanks to the public's lack
of knowledge, or apathy, still are in Congress, and still receiving
bundles of bribes.
The billions in no-strings-attached taxpayers' month to pay off speculators and others who made reckless gambles with other people's money, to bring about the worst financial crisis since the great financial depression of the 1930s−or possible worse!
Although this is no way to win friends and influence people, none of this could have occurred if more Americans had shown some semblance of responsibility and became informed. And with the obsession with video-type media existing today, conditions are even worse than when the prior corruption was rampant. Compounded by the elimination of investigative reporters, and their replacement with cheaper and biased political pundits. The future looks dismal for the American people, who in a way, earned what they are not reaping.
