Need a program to tell the players…

William (Bill) Black wrote a post over at New Economic Perspectives website on his time during the S&L crisis and how that relates to the banking crisis today. The players then and the players now. Excellent read!!

Keating’s infamous July 15, 1987 memo about me mentions Speaker Wright:

“HIGHEST PRIORITY – GET BLACK

GOOD GRIEF – IF YOU CAN’T GET WRIGHT AND CONGRESS TO GET BLACK – KILL HIM DEAD – YOU OUGHT TO RETIRE. (Punctuation and emphasis as in the original.)

One of the attachments Keating made to this memo was a news article in which I criticized the Speaker for his extortion.

Prof. Black is the best at telling it like it is, and apparently, pissing off members of Congress. One of other things missing this time around besides someone like Black? Truth in Media coverage, or actually, just coverage….
