Wow, what a book! What a Great Man (at least this is what this self-serving manifesto reads like)! But wait, isn't he the same political appointee from President Obama, who gave us the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which now appears to do everything for the banksters, and little to nothing for the consumers? (The CFPB's major achievement was to erect a legal shield, legal immunity from prosecution, that is, for those millions of false affidavits they filed for their fraudclosure, or illegal foreclosing of homes. Their second major achievement, although still a work in progress [as of 3/14], is to once again make sure the government [the taxpayers] ensure mortgage backed securities, the same stuff which ostensibly initiated the last financial meltdown [in actuality it was their ultra-leveraging]).
