The Taste of Fraudulence

Roseann Berthron-Arechiga

Would you pay $8 million of a chocolate-chip cookie? Or $10 million for a brownie? Of course not, but that didn’t stop Santa Clara County workers and community members from holding a “Big Bank Bake Sale” on June 18, selling baked goods at ridiculous prices. Why? To recover the money that banks have scammed from taxpayers. With banks illegally rigging interest rates to maximize their own profits,  Santa Clara County could have lost as much as $54 million.
