Fannie and Freddie - Not Their Fault?

I had spent a lot of my life in the private sector, in finance, and I was stunned by what I learned this year, I was shocked. The extent to which our financial system went from being a system to support the real economy—companies, job creation, wealth creation in this country—to a system that was money making money.
