$20 Trillion. The Cost of the Financial Crisis

Better Markets released an extensive Cost of the Crisis Report detailing how the 2008 financial crash and the economic catastrophe it caused will cost the United States more than $20 trillion. The Report was released the day before the fifth anniversary of President Obama signing the historic Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act into law, the most comprehensive financial reform since the Great Depression that’s working to reinstate the layers of protection between Main Street families and Wall Street’s riskiest activities.
