"Derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction."
5 years after the financial crisis of 2008, Wall Street is still involved in many of the same destructive activities that they were involved with before the crash. What's more, they still have the explicit backing of government officials in Washington D.C.
Here are a few simple solutions each citizen can take to help remedy this problem:
1) Invest in passively managed retirement funds instead of actively managed
2) Refuse to vote for politicians who've sold themselves to Wall Street.
3) Support local lenders (community banks and credit unions).
