The economic good times are back for the credit card issuers – that much is for sure – but I don’t know about the consumers making up the 99%!
AND, HELLO!!! IT’S 8 FUCKING YEARS LATER AND WE ARE STILL A CONSUMPTION DRIVEN ECONOMY?!?! BEING LED THROUGH THE NOSE BY THE FINANCE INDUSTRY?!?!? AND ALL WE HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO IS THE TPP?!?!? IT’S AN OBAMANATION!
And then there is this gem from Matt Taibbi:
“America’s industrial economy – one in which companies compete not on price and quality but in political influence, and ear profits not be attracting customers with good service, but by using the power of the state to protect markets and force customers into the fold.”
(Yea, Mr. Taibbi is talking about, amongst one hell of a lot of other examples, “Obamacare”)
