The Bipartisan Roots of the Financial Services Crisis
HELENA YEAMAN examines the partisan claims about the origins of the financial services crisis of 2008–2009. She challenges the view that observers should solely blame either the Democrats or the Republicans for the political climate that allowed the crisis to develop. She finds that the political roots of the crisis can be found in the strange admixture of the Democratic promotion of homeownership for all, combined with Republican adherence to laissezfaire in the financial services sector.
