I'm not much for politics on this blog, though I occasionally push some stuff through (perhaps more lately than I should?). However, this article caught my eye yesterday and I felt the need to share.
I'm not a fan of the big banks. They pretend to be customer-oriented and that they care about the customer's interests, but everything they've ever done "for" me has shown to be problematic at best. But I digress.
The article isn't long, but for those of you who don't like following links (or can't), the article explains that the new stadium to be built in Santa Clara for the 49ers is heavily financed by some banks involved in the recent bailouts, including Bank of America and Goldman Sachs.
If these companies have enough money to help pay for a stadium, why can't they afford to take better care of their customers? The money they should be using to help out people in tough times - times they caused - is instead going to provide themselves more tax writeoffs and posh luxury suites.
