Summary Robert Scheer, who has been covering power and corruption for two decades as a reporter and columnist for the "Los Angeles Times" and as a founder of "Truthdig", argues that there is nothing murky or even surprising about the banking meltdown of 2008. He shows that this fiasco could have been anticipated and that there are culprits responsible that should be named and who continue to wield enormous power over our lives.--[source unknown].
