Common Sense Finance Goals

The reason I decided to start this blog, is witnessing the misery people were put into caused by the recent sub-prime mortgage meltdown that pushed the U.S economy into the worst recession since the Great Depression.What seems more obvious to me is that only average households, and hard working individuals were affected most by this crisis. Big corporations such as AIG, Citigroup and other huge institutions are doing just fine. They all got bailed out by the government and individuals where left out to the waiting lines of unemployment offices and foreclosures.

A letter to Occupy Wall Street

Although protesting is the essence of democracy, it is rarely enough to achieve results. I salute the courage of all people who took their cause to the streets of major cities all around the world, protesting greed and corruption. This was a major step towards justice and the end of corruption. Who could ever imagine that Stock Markets would turn into casino machines, corporations would be treated as human beings with unlimited power and access to influence governments and regulations, and that the big fish would simply destroys the small fish with no reprimands?
