One Year Since the Collapse: A Review of The Indypendent’s Economic Coverage

The Indypendent Sep 8, 2009

It’s been a year since that “so-called scary” moment, when it looked like global capitalism was going to destroy itself and everyone freaked out.

For a brief moment, when Main Street was outraged with Wall Street, there was room to dialogue on a national scale about this economic model. At the time, The Indypendent was there providing analysis and critique when it mattered most.

Now, a year into the economic collapse, the debate has been silenced. What began as a discussion about questioning the capitalist model has quickly turned into one focused on how to save the system — largely leaving the same problems and people in place. And at great expense to American taxpayers.

It’s important that newspapers such as The Indypendent continue to inform Main Street, and to keep our elected officials accountable for the decisions that have been made to address the severe recession that spun out of the act of defending this economic model.

Here is a list of The Indypendent’s best economic articles and analysis within the last year:
