Robert Scheer and David Dayen Uncover Untold Stories of the Mortgage Crisis
In this week’s episode of “Scheer Intelligence,” Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer speaks with David Dayen, author of the book “Chain of Title: How Three Ordinary Americans Uncovered Wall Street’s Great Foreclosure Fraud.”
Dayen and Scheer discuss the federal government’s failure to respond to millions of people who suffered from the mortgage fallout from the 2008 bank crisis. Dayen tells Scheer that anger over foreclosures has fueled this year’s bitter and unusual presidential race. The two also discuss why, despite the best efforts of the book’s subjects, little has been done to mitigate homeowners’ losses.
