The Debt Narrative is Dead Wrong

The moral tale of household debt is repeated over and over. The crisis of 2008 was caused by too much household debt, and because lending was to the wrong people — namely poor families with low revenue and less responsibility. Banks needed to be bailed out with public money because of these excesses. The problem with this narrative is that it's wrong.

State Constitutions

I have created a website that lets users read, print, hear and search all 50 state constitutions individually or simultaneously from one location. Features and benefits also include (1) a news feed that returns only results about state constitutions, (2) a personality profile of each state and audio links to that state preamble, (3) direct links to each state constitution, (4) mp3 files of each state constitution that can be listened to or downloaded like an audiobook. It is a work in progress as I work to improve its capabilities and functionality. But it is finished for the most part and I am pleased for now. Visit it, use it and critique it. Your comments will help me improve it.
