U.S. Mortgage Fraud Publicity Building

January 27, 2011

E.J. Manning

A commission was appointed to look into misconduct regarding the national mortgage and banking crisis, signed into being by President Obama on May 20, 2009. The 10-member panel is after any person that may have violated the laws of the United States in relation to the crisis. The scuttlebutt is that a number of financial industry figures and corporations have been found lacking and are being referred for prosecution. All of this portends to make quite a bit of news in the near future.

The media has been working hard at divining any sources of information. The New York Times claims to have obtained a copy of a 576-page report, concluding that the financial disaster was avoidable while laying blame on federal regulators for the failure to act on knowledge of shoddy mortgage lending and reckless risk taking. Keep in mind that at least some of these shoddy practices continue behind the scenes, building on a proliferating number of foreclosures in the United States.

The idea that politicians hope to project is that the financial crisis is being resolved. The truth is that the national financial crisis is just getting underway.
