Ripped off, Part 2

We ‘ve done two previous broadcasts about massive fraud and criminality that results in huge profits for some, and prosecutions for pretty much nobody – but we’re not leaving this one alone.

Tonight, Mike and Mark speak with E. Henry Schoenberger and Eric Dixon about what it’ll take to get indictments and prosecutions – and a lot more.

Fixing this might just be something that the 99% of us can get behind, together, to actually change something.

About our guests:

Henry Schoenberger is a Cleveland entrepreneur, financial specialist, writer and author of How We Got Swindled by Wall Street Godfathers, Greed & Financial Darwinism – The 30-Year War Against The American Dream. The book, an insightful look at the failures of Washington and Wall Street as well as all the contributing factors that led to the current depression-like economy and dysfunctional state of the US, includes a foreword from David Satterfield, a veteran financial journalist who shared in two Pulitzer Prizes while he was the business editor at the Miami Herald.

Schoenberger’s 1990 book, Invest for Success, How to Avoid Getting Ripped Off by Real Estate Partnerships, the Stock Market and Diversification became a critical success nationally, and recently B&N decided to carry it again online and in stock. He has authored a number of articles in professional journals and mainstream publications.
