Bank Nationalization

I try not to ask of you something political too often.

I'd like to ask you to call your congressman and direct their attention to Simon Johnson's article The Quiet Coup in The Atlantic. Simon Johnson, formerly chief economist to the IMF, says that our banking situation resembles that of emerging market failures, and it argues for bank nationalization. Most congressmen get The Atlantic delivered, so it won't be difficult to tell them that you'd like them to read the article.

If you live in Portland, you can call Earl Blumenauer's office at (202) 225-4811
