Making Sense on Cents in 2010
Posted by Larry Doyle on December 31, 2009 9:58 AM |
What can Americans do to make more “sense on cents” in 2010?
With the divide between Wall Street and Main Street never wider and only widening further, how can Americans collectively make their voices heard?
I will provide a few simple pieces of advice:
1. Send a message to both Wall Street and Washington supporting the lawsuits currently outstanding against Wall Street’s self-regulator FINRA. These lawsuits would go a long way in exposing the incestuous relationship between the Wall Street banks and the Washington establishment.
To facilitate this undertaking, I recommend readers forward “Mary Schapiro Owes America Some Answers” to their elected representatives, friends, family, and colleagues.
2. Hat tip to a Sense on Cents reader for providing a link to a great idea promoted by Arianna Huffington called Move Your Money. The website provides guidance as to the strongest community banks by zip code. Very simply, this idea encourages people to move their money from the large Wall Street banks, which are wedded to Washington, into small community banks. I put this idea in the camp of “money talks, bull%$#@ walks.”
I encourage readers to make sure they stay within the FDIC-insured limits when making deposits in any bank. In the spirit of the season, the following video provides an inspiring look at the idea to “Move Your Money.”
Together we can make a difference.
