As the settlements keep being negotiated and not one banker goes to jail, you can read this and weep with those impacted by the mortgage scams. Most of those losing their homes cite medical crises and layoffs as the reasons their tenuous holds on the dream of home ownership gives way and they fall. Heartbreaking. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982597770, Paperback)

While Occupy protests were taking place across the nation in Fall of 2011, a lone website, Occupy the Boardroom, invited Americans who would never make it to an occupation to write down their beliefs about the financial system and their experiences with loans and banking.

The letters are polite, funny, outraged, moving, instructive, and inspiring. They are one of the most direct and compelling records ever assembled of what went on in the housing crisis and the great recession, written by We the People.

In partnership with Occupy the Boardroom, a team of young editors from the magazine n+1 read through and gathered the most important, eloquent, and fascinating of these letters. Hear, at last, what American citizens know about their country rather than the opinions of talking heads. Find out what Americans want all of us to do differently.
