What is missing that trillions and gazillions, never existed in the first place!
The banks actually lent out ten times the money they really had!
That was the scam!They figured the world would keep going in a steady state and we wuld just keep paying and paying, but never be able to pay it all back because it never existed ...so they effed the system with their greed.
The spenders in the private sector were rolled over by the financial wizards that knew they could parcel all the bad debts up and sell them off as bonds to suckers like the pension fund guys.
Who were part of the bankers in the first place!
Do you see any bankers in the soup lines? DUH!
No, we feel ripped off because OTHERS spent like that and partied like maniacs....
And somehow WE are going to end up paying for it.
