Financial Regulation (Dodd Frank) is Four Years Old and Helping America

0

Bankers and politicians said the sky would fall if we passed financial regulation. But, guess what? The Dodd-Frank bill is four years-old and helping Americans everywhere. Despite over 3,000 financial industry lobbyists putting their fingerprints everywhere, almost half the bill is finalized, some is implemented, and more remains to be put online. In fact, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that bankers hate has already returned $3.8 billion to consumers who were victims of financial violations of the law. Americans are fighting back against financial abuses. 375,000 people have filed complaints against debt collectors, credit card companies, mortgage bankers, and similar entities. Listen to Bartlett Naylor of Public Citizen tell us how it’s working for the people and how regulators are dragging their feet to implement the rest of the bill.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
