Super Charge Your Business or Career Growth – UFSC Events


Wall Street / Main Street

 

 

Fannie Mae - Freddie Mac

The trillion dollar “Wall Street/ Main Street” discussion is back in the spotlight. Your action for equitable treatment is required.

 

Multi trillion dollar home loan giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,  Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSE), would be BANKRUPT and EXTINCT if not for the 2008 BAIL OUT and subsequent rescue by the US taxpayers as a response to the 2008 world financial crisis.

 

Home-Ownership

Talk is now increasing about removing the GSE conservatorship protection.  Plenty of government and private organizations from the United States Congress to the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, the Independent Community Bankers of America to Moelis & Company are making proposals.  This removal would let investor stockholders have access to possible profit gains and it would also remove financial responsibility from the taxpayer.

 

The Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) is concerned that not only the stock investors and industry be given proper treatment, but that the communities of color that have lost trillions of dollars (CBS News June, 2013) in home ownership be given proper consideration.
