Danny Boy - Everyone refers to UA as Kitties (Rats, Mildcats, mildrats, etc...) - not just ASU fans! I'm an ASU fan and I don't want Rich Rod to leave - hell he can't beat ASU so I hope he stays a long time!

If you are that dense to think that bankers caused the financial mess you are in then you my friend have been living in a hole or underground or in a go nowhere, suck hole community for the last 6 years...Oh I forgot you do live in a go nowhere suck hole community - Sorry for your lack of basic economic knowledge!  >:D

I knew when once ASU whipped up on you guys the trash talk would get even worse. Take it like a man and get your panties out of a bunch - there's always next year! Here's to another Rich Rod loss!! Cheers!  >:D

Damn, I hope that's not your best arguement. I'm actually pretty lucky. I've been in my house 10 plus years, never a second mortgage, and on the back side of a 15yr note. Unlike most of America, we are good. So if it's not the bankers, should we blame the pizza guy? How bout the greedy construction worker who was making mad bank pounding nails? Yeah!   

Having spent 20+ years each in both Phx and Tucson, I escaped the go nowhere - suck hole community. No question about it....

Apparently you do not know that the banks are regulated by the federal government - do they not have TV's or news stations down there (or even newspapers!) - maybe you just don't understand them because you only get Telemundo?!? That's what's wrong with our society - people like you always wanting to blame someone else for their own failures! It's pitiful and this piont the finger at someone else society we live in is only getting worse. How about you be a part of the solution and not the problem Dan and stop the misplaced blame game. Especially since you have no clue what you are talking about!

With that post, aren't you pointing the finger at someone else and blaming others? Just an observation.

I didn't point fingers or blame anyone - I just stated a FACT.

You remind me of a quote from The Big Lebowski: "You're out of your league Donny!"  :D

There is more than enough blame to go around for the financial crisis that erupted in 2008.  Here is an interesting article.  Lots of blame

http://www.economicpredictions.org/who-is-to-blame-for-the-financial-crisis.htm

Unfortunately, probably the biggest problem (my opinion) was the loosening of mortgage lending regulations on banks / investment banks, resulting in a huge surge in subprime mortgages.  Those were "repackaged" into  mortgage-backed securities -- not direct pass-throughs (like a GNMA pool), but derivatives, which divided those MBS's into several tranches (portions), some of which were, or should have been, rated as junk or lower (non-rated). Those were the ultimate culprit when the housing bubble started to burst.  Bankers were not the whole problem, but their greed (lending to people the bankers KNEW should not be getting a mortgage) certainly contributed to the meltdown.

Yes, Smitty, banks ARE regulated by the government.  But those regulations were drastically reduced, starting in the early 2000's, so bankers, while not entirely to blame, certainly share much of the blame.

Nah. It's just our version of the Hatfields and MCoys. We actually love our brethren down Mexico way. :-*  I admit that Phoenix is smoggier and hotter, but Tucson is dustier and delightfully cooler, especially at night. Two things I still have trouble with in Tucson...(1) A lack of streetlights (my night vision is getting worse...and (2) Not "getting it" about Sonoran hotdogs. I went to the holy grail of El Guero Canelo and I must be missing something, despite ordering it with everything on it. ;) I did like the grilled Fresno chiles they had on the condiments bar. :P

Mike - your 10 minutes of Google research for "who is to blame for the financial crisis" to pick this article to accentuate your point is funny. Anyone can do it and I know there are many counter point articles that can be cut and pasted like you did. This just proves that our society is always looking to point fingers and not take personal responsibility.

I'll take the blame for the financial crisis if you take the blame for police brutality and the LA riots! No hard feelings buddy!

Absolutely, I looked for an article that was fairly comprehensive.  Not sure what your point is about that.  You can pick any article, and I would challenge you to find a single one (not written by a banker, that is) that would say bankers were blameless.  This article was pretty balanced, IMO.  There is plenty of blame to go around.  But if you have a "counter point article" that says bankers were blameless, please do post it.   I could use a good laugh. I do know, that as far back as the mid - 1980's, investment bankers were creating multi-tranche MBS's, and some of those tranches were pretty toxic themselves.  And that was before there were any sub-prime mortgages.
