"The American Values Network is speaking out and organizing on behalf of the left out and left behind. Most compelling, they are creating a public square which insures honest and civil conversation."

End Corporate Bribes to terrorists!
The bi-partisan Lugar-Cardin rule was passed in 2010 in response to concerns over corruption and how these payments in oil-rich countries could be used to support terrorism. We can't return to the days when international corporations bribe strongmen and terrorists to get cheaper access to resources, especially with ISIS's funding dependent on secret sales of oil.
The Moral Sides of Lending Industry
At the beginning of the 21st century, things began to change. Direct lending companies entered the image and the approach has become the processing of as many loans as possible. And since these riders have no relationships with borrowers, and it is likely they are not interacting or gather again, they don't really care if the loan is something that can be reasonably managed. It is a simple transaction, there are no emotions involved. This is part of the reason why we saw a collapse of massive houses at the end of the last decade. Creditors have begun to grant loans to people who were really qualified, so they could get fast money. But now that we completely recover and the economy is so stable since it has been for years, it's time for us to study the role of Ethics in the profession of loans.
