The Mortgage Crisis and 'Occupy Our Home'

Hosted by

The "Occupy" movement was criticized for lacking specific goals. Now protesters against America's banks are trying to help evicted families get back into their foreclosed homes.  We hear about civil disobedience and property rights, as concerns about economic inequality move to the suburbs of Southern California. Also, we talk with State Attorney General Kamala Harris about her withdrawal from the national settlement with big banks to team up with her counterpart in Nevada to investigate mortgage fraud. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Internet piracy and  Hollywood versus Silicon Valley.
