    Michael Moore: Will You Help Me With My Next Film? ...a request from Michael Moore


    At least someone is investigating how this mess happened, is there really no one else that is looking into the causes of this crisis?

    I d be interested to hear some top bankers, ... testify about this. But does it always have to be Michael More? What happened to the journalists?

    How come we know so little about how exactly (in details) this mess started from within the private sector. Why is it we always get the political crap (Fanny Mea & Freddy Mac , which is only a small part of the cause).

    :lol:

    Good one, I m no fan either of his movies. He likes to exaggerate too much.

    But now about the question, isn't their any real investigations of other journalists that have shown anything? This shit has been going on for so long, how come so many of those corporate guys are keeping their mouth shut? I think this letter makes some good points (but I m not saying that his movie will): if you are a "good" american then you have an obligation to inform the people about what exactly (in the private sector) caused this. The private sector isn't free of guilt when we talk about this whole crisis, they were the ones that were supposed to "self-regulate".

    I would have to assume there are some people investigating this.. it's too big a story for some investigative journalists (real ones) not to be delving into this

    <sarcasm>

    I can't wait until Michael Moore investigates the Obama Administration and the Democrats in Congress for pushing this mindnumbing 'stimulus' bill. That'll be great!

    What makes you think this started from within the private sector? Didn't it start with the financial deregulation bills passed by the Democratic House and signed by Clinton in 1999 and 2000? Didn't it start with the Fed creating the real estate bubble by keeping interest rates too low for too long? Didn't it start with the regulatory agencies and the Congress not wanting to interfere with the creation and sales of derivatives because, as Geithner pointed out:

    http://www.financialstability.gov/docs/fact-sheet.pdf

    Moore is a propagandist, not an investigator. We all know whom he will blame without seeing his film. Why would you turn to Moore for answers instead of Geithner?

    TG-18: Secretary Geithner Introduces Financial Stability Plan

    The truth is that beginning in the early 1990's nearly everyone in business and government believed our economy needed as much abundant, cheap credit as we could find if we were to prosper. To that end, the Fed kept interest rates as low as it could without causing inflation and financial regulations were removed in the late 1990's in order to allow the financial industry to create new sources of capital and credit. If we start hanging people who are responsible for this, Washington will become almost empty, although to be fair, the failures of those in government were well intentioned, and few in the private sector would be held responsible because with only a few exceptions, they did what was expected of them when the financial regulations were removed in the late 1990's.
