  •  Thanks for the news and blues, Joe. The piece (7+ / 0-)

    on the Ecuadoran bankers and the bold young Ecuadoran president should be forwarded to POTUS asap.  The US isn't ready for nationalized banks, but there has been talk of state banks set up like North Dakota's, a solvent entity that's not required any bailout.

    If I were the night shift custodian in a bank, I'd set my mop in the bucket, pull out my harmonica, slide my back down the wall to the floor and play the kind of blues inspired by having to clean up a bank's mess.

    Be well, Joe.

      i think that we'd be doing well if we could get a number of states to set up banks on the north dakota model.  back a few years ago i remember reading that several states (including my state, maryland) were interested and eyeballing the prospects.  unfortunately, i haven't heard anything further about other states following in north dakota's footsteps.
