Another interesting video which uses a Goldman Sachs man to explain what happened in Detroit. Goldman Sachs is a multinational investment firm which would make it part of the 1% which the poster has railed against numerous times. In fact in recent posts he has blamed the woes of the country on big banks and financial institutions like Goldman Sachs. It would appear to be schizophrenic to be able to both blame firms like Goldman Sachs while also praising their theory of why Detroit failed.

no

It is not schizophrenic for two parties to agree about the cause of Detroit's issues.

http://www.mlive.com/business/detroit/index.ssf/2013/07/new_york_times_h... Portion of the article-Every day, truck drivers shuffle around 1,500-pound bars of aluminum in a circuit of metro Detroit warehouses. Sometimes they do this dance several times a day.
The motive, according to a New York Times article called “A Shuffle of Aluminum, but to Banks, Pure Gold,” is to lengthen the storage time of the metal, adding millions of dollars to the profits of Wall Street banks such as Goldman Sachs by exploiting pricing regulations.
Maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't use a Goldman Sachs spokesperson if I wanted an honest opinion on what caused the Detroit bankruptcy.

Just another example how our financial system is not working for the greater good. Its hard for a man who worships Freedom works and Americans for Prosperity to understand this.

Well, have you done your part in fixing it? I mean, have you stopped taking out loans for houses and cars and consumer items, and have you stopped parking your money in investment accounts?

I keep asking you about that, and you keep ignoring me. 'Fess up.
