The protests in the United States are becoming serious. Hundreds have been arrested in New York and the protests are spreading! It has the potential to be become a serious embarassment to the Obama government if not a downright threat. This is a massive country and it would appear that a popular movement against the bankers, the speculators and the politicians who have brought about a collapse of the economy is under way.
Typically however, the bankers continue to 'rob' the public and only today the CITI bank have proposed the introduction of a flat 15 dollar a month charge on debit cards. The only way that one can avoid this charge is predictably to be rich, well rich enough to maintain 6000 dollars in your current account.
I always believe that what happens in the USA soon spreads across 'the pond' so what will we see first? A popular movement of the people or the introduction of a monthly charge on your debit account?
As a popular game show once said 'The choice is yours folks'!!
