Have you found yourself wondering latley "who or what destroyed the economy?" Well, New York Times
columnist David Leonhardt
and labor lawyer Thomas Geoghegan
have a simple answer to that question: we've been robbed. In his article "Infinite Debt" for the April issue of Harpers
Geoghegan theorizes that the legalization of usury created perverse incentives for investors that led to a flight of capital. Leonhardt takes the theory a step further in his Times
article by suggesting that investors knowingly looted money from the government in the form of bailouts.
