SEP presidential candidate speaks on financial crisis

19 September 2008

Jerry White, presidential candidate of the Socialist Equality Party, spoke today on moves by the Federal Reserve to bail out Wall Street speculators while workers face deepening hardship. White called for the return of resources appropriated by the financial elite, and for the transformation of banks into democratically controlled utilities, as part of a socialist transformation of the economy.
