Re-regulating Financial InstitutionsThe ongoing subprime mortgage crisis and growing consumer debt in the U.S. has contributed to a volatile stock market, higher unemployment, millions of home foreclosures and falling housing prices. Apart from the current real estate crash, bankruptcies in the U.S. related to unemployment and lack of medical insurance, rose from 616,000 in 1989 to over 1.8 million in 2004. At the same time, credit card debt has almost tripled since 1989.
Key to Reversing Mortgage and Debt Crisis
Journalist James Lardner,
senior fellow at DEMOS
and co-author of "Up To Our Eyeballs,"
conducted by Scott Harris
As a recession looms and energy prices hit stratospheric levels, more than 81 percent of Americans surveyed believe the nation is headed in the wrong direction. Yale University professor of economics Robert Schiller recently warned that there is a good chance that residential property prices will fall further than those seen during the Great Depression when home values fell by 30 per cent. Schiller estimates that residential property prices in the US have already fallen 15 percent since their peak in 2006.
A new book titled, "Up To Our Eyeballs: How Shady Lenders and Failed Economic Policies Are Drowning Americans in Debt," examines how the deregulation of financial institutions and other policies favoring corporations have contributed to the exploitation of consumers and an economy in crisis. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with journalist James Lardner, senior fellow at DEMOS and co-author of "Up To Our Eyeballs." He discusses the causes of the current economic upheaval and new regulations that could help protect consumers.
