Good comment to a good and thoughtful article. Thanks!
Redlining programs began about the early 80's and kept getting sillier and more foolish. New regulations to relax mortgage requirements went way too far. I saw mostly that irresponsible people were rewarded. Bankers are good at risk evaluation and should not have been hamstrung with unworkable regulations. (BTW - blaming Bush is a pathetic - it started much earlier than that)

Family history tells of union thuggery back in the early 40's, so it's longer history than most of us realize.

Agree. It was a shock when I returned to the States and found that some public jobs had been unionized. Very bad move!

Obama - Ho Hum. We see and hear him all the time and I'm supposed to voluntarily watch another pathetic long winded talk blaming everyone but himself for the mess. The people to blame are those who foolishly voted for someone with no experience in leadership, or much else. The only experience he seemed to have was lecturing and so that's all we got.
Media spins are making us dizzy
Unfortunately, I have to agree..
Now that I reflect on this, it was the countries that are now having the most financial troubles that most often were having union strikes. Germany was seldom a problem, I never noticed any strikes there.
In Europe for an extended stay, we often went on short sight-seeing trips. All too often where we went they would be some strike going on that would interfere with what we wanted to see. So we would just go to an adjoining country and sightsee, and spend our dollars there.
