Not Even a SINGLE Prosecution Today, Even Though the 2008 Crisis Was 70 Times Bigger
from Washington’s Blog:
The top regulator and prosecutor during the S&L crisis – professor of law and economics, Bill Black – explained at a recent TED talk that 90% of all no-document loans were fraudulent and 90% of appraisals were fraudulently inflated at the insistence of the banks.
Government officials were informed about these fraudulent practices decades ago … and yet did nothing:
In 2000 … the honest appraisers got together a formal petition, begging the government to act, and begging the industry to act, stop stop the epidemic of appraisal fraud [where the banks blacklisted honest appraisers who refused to fraudulently inflate the value of their appraisals.].
What about liar’s loans? That warning actually comes earlier …. in 1990 ….
