Today's economic crisis is the worst since the Great Depression.

Korten identifies the deeper sources of the failure: Wall Street
institutions that have perfected the art of creating phantom "wealth" without producing anything of real value. Our hope lies not with Wall Street, but with Main Street: in an economy that is locally based, community-oriented, and devoted to creating a better life for all.

U.S. Socialists: Obamanomics offers little hope for working people
26 Mar 2009
Considering the track record of the government bailouts to save the “free market,” socialists believe an additional $2 trillion will not ease up credit markets and will do little to ease the on-going national economic crisis. Congress has presently invested more than $2 trillion since February 2008 to free up the credit markets; however, the credit markets remain as frozen as Antarctica.
