Suicide Girls Interview: Homeland - Cory Doctorow

"There was a good book I read last year, The Monster, about the Lehman Brother’s bankruptcy. One of the things that the author pointed out is the mortgage salesmen who sold the shitty mortgages that Lehman was laundering were literally the same people working out of the same boiler rooms as had been used to pump and duck the S&L crisis. Literally the same fraudsters moved from one fraud to the next fraud to the next. They take the same skill set; It’s highly transferable, from one fraud to the next, and they bring it along with them. So I found it real easy to imagine the same corporate crooks who gave us the subprime crisis, giving us an educational bond crisis in the same way and exercising undue influence in the halls of power in the same way. " 4 out of 5 http://suicidegirls.com/interviews/2902/Cory-Doctorow-Homeland/
