Americans for Financial Reform helps you tell the Federal Reserve to limit the risk the big banks take by making banks have more capital on hand when they borrow money. Banks borrow money, mainly to take on ever-larger (and riskier) investments, putatively on behalf of their shareholders, and though I'd prefer that banks do more lending money to businesses creating innovative technologies, products, and processes, I'd certainly prefer that they more real money lying around when they invest with borrowed money, because when such investments blow up in their face, we have to bail them out, and I think I speak for just about all taxpayers when I say I do not want to bail out any more banks in my lifetime. The Fed announced in December it would make the riskiest big American banks hold about $1 dollar in deposits for every $9 in assets-on-paper, versus what some of the riskiest banksters held in the run-up to the 2008 meltdown, which was about $1 in deposits for every $30 in assets-on-paper. That rule would be a start, but the banksters are already whining about it, so we need to push back.
Meanwhile, when you modify your phone or tablet's operating system so you can (among other things) run lawfully-acquired software that the phone or tablet's manufacturer doesn't want you to run, they call that "jailbreaking," as if you're breaking your device or phone out of jail, which, sadly, you kind of are. And unless the Library of Congress specifically exempts such "jailbreaking" from copyright laws, corporations will continue to assert that you've violated their copyright by modifying the OS. But unless you're taking that modified OS and selling it to other people as if it were your own creation, then what's the problem? Here's the problem: big telecom corporations only want you to run the apps their cronies make. Even free marketeers should be aghast that corporations would use the law to restrict not only consumer freedom, but the freedom of software apps to compete fairly. Hence the Electronic Frontier Foundation helps you tell the Library of Congress to exempt jailbreaking from copyright laws. (You can read the EFF's own quite edifying petition to the Library here.)
Meanwhile, if you've missed opportunities to tell the Securities and Exchange Commission (or SEC) to implement a vigorous CEO pay disclosure rule -- which would reveal the ratio between a corporation's CEO pay and its average employee pay -- then CREDO still helps you do that. The SEC has been very corporate-friendly (versus shareholder-friendly, which is closer to its legal mandate) during the reign of Mary Jo White, but all that means is we need to be even louder. Recall that the Harvard Business Review found most Americans thinking the CEO-to-unskilled-labor-employee ratio (which, admittedly, we'd expect to be worse than a CEO-to-average pay ratio) was around 30:1, when it's actually around 350:1 -- and more to the point, Americans across the political spectrum would prefer that ratio be more like seven to one. And remember, a CEO-to-average-worker ratio would be better than that -- perhaps more like five or six to one? Five-to-one still isn't one-to-one, ye teabag-toting warriors against the Obamanoid Communist Socialist Nazi Kenyan Anti-colonialist Revolution.
