Wall Street, the economy, government gridlock, extremism, and simple greed have all led to the economic problems Americans face today. Part of the fallout has affected one of the prime tenets of the American Dream: owning one's own home. In 2011, foreclosures were at a record high and many of them were due to mismanagement and lax mortgage requirements. No one was overseeing the process while unscrupulous banks and mortgage companies sold homes to people who could not afford to buy them.
As one example, watch the segment from a 60 Minutes exposé on mortgage mismanagement: The Next Housing Shock.
The posters in this series reflect the conflicts the American political system has been experiencing during the turbulent period between 2010-2018. They are meant to encourage an exploration and a dialogue about the cultural minefield we now find ourselves in.
