Catherine on Mortgage Market Bubbles, “Piratization” and & Other Frauds

Catherine on Mortgage Market Bubbles & Fraud

We have had requests for a history of our warnings on the housing and mortgage markets and related privatization of government assets and outsourcing of government funds. Here are some of the most popular articles, audios and blog posts over the last decade.

“The Myth of the Rule of Law”, by Catherine Austin Fitts published in the fall of 2001 was one of Catherine’s efforts to warn the global financial community about collateral fraud in the US mortgage market and the shift of government assets to private corporations.

“Where is the Collateral?”, by Chris Sanders Scoop Media, Oct 2003 – connects the dots through the Hamilton Securities litigation, the missing money, questionable HUD deals, the impact on investors. And its sequel: “So, Where is the Collateral?”

“America’s Black Budget and the Manipulation of Mortgage & Financial Markets”, by Catherine Austin Fitts, May 2004, describes how the U.S. governmental apparatus has become so powerful in the marketplace and asks what it means to the health of our economy.

“Dillon Read and the Aristocracy of Stock Profits”, by Catherine Austin Fitts, March 2006–a comprehensive business school quality case study depicting the nuts and bolts and money flows of a private prison company as an example of the public-private funding model subsidizing corporations in the political economy operating in the US today. Unanswered Questions about Andrew Cuomo was added in September 2006.

“The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008”, by Catherine Austin Fitts, August 2008, describes U.S. mortgage fraud within the context of the global political economy.

“Financial Coup d’Etat”, by Catherine Austin Fitts, February 2009, describes attending a private investment conference in London in 2001 and coming to the realization that the banks, corporations and investors acting in each global region to strip governments and communities of their resources were the exact same players–a relatively small group that reappeared again and again in Russia, Eastern Europe, and Asia accompanied by the same well-known accounting firms and law firms. The patterns of privatization as a global “piratization” became clear.
