Global Financial Security

Good job looking back at the reason for the recession nearly 10 years ago. The banks are given credit for the lion share of the collapse in the markets and home ownership. But you need to go back further and study why the banks were in that spot. Home ownership became an entitlement during the Bush and Clinton era. Home ownership was an American right. Banks were loaning 110% more or less over appraisals. The feds supported it. Home ownership is and must be a privilege that is earned over time being a good steward of financial resources.

Content is professional. I believe that McKinsey is adding to the already pervasive bias that men with British accent are infinitely more capable than without. For a company I look to to help dispel myths this feels like fuel to the fire.
